As always, lots of love and I promise I'm still staying strong! <3
This is Sarah's Dad.
Sarah had a tough end-of-last-week, as she struggled with several painful issues. But starting Friday, her body started responding better to treatment, and Saturday and Sunday we started seeing the vibrant, happy, active Sarah that we all love. Saturday and Sunday, Sarah was determined to get some exercise, because her body started craving movement (a good sign!). She took four laps around the Pediatric floor on Saturday with her Mom, and on Sunday she broke her record by taking four more laps in the morning and five laps with me on Sunday night. Sarah's a favorite patient among the nurses and doctors here, and her room has become a place for them to "hang out" and talk. There's a lot of laughter in the room, and we've been told that her wall shows off more great cards from family and friends than most of them have ever seen. Like she says, there are times when the pain medication makes her sleepy or "spacey," but overall, she had a good weekend.
Several nurses have admired her window, where visitors draw pictures, sign autographs, and write encouraging messages. Keep praying for Sarah's healing! The Holy Spirit is very strong here!
