This will brighten your day ... 245

More tomorrow ...

The doctors wanted Jennifer to try to stand yesterday because she has been bed-ridden for nearly 2 weeks without moving. Unfortunately the pain was so excruciating she was unable to succeed. The rod in the back and broken ribs made moving more than she could endure at this time. Baby steps maybe today.

Oh I wanted to add that I hope my sister and brother-in-law can get from the hotel to the hospital to see her today. There is a blizzard from NY to NH.

    I know the pain of broken ribs, but not a steel rod in the spine. Can't even imagine the pain. It hurts to breathe when you have broken ribs. It hurts to even move. Still praying for Jennifer. emoticon

    They are all so cute but I love, love, love the dog in curlers.

Between the imobility in the past couple of weeks, plus all the broken bones, I am sure the attempt to stand would have been excruciating. But she will get there, slow and steady.
Hope the snow does not prevent your sis & BIL from getting to see her. I am sure she really appreciates thier visits.....
(((Hugs))) to all

Thanks for sharing the animal photos, he always make me laugh.

    Wishing the best for Jennifer, and I am concerned about all of those in the areas that were hit by the blizzard. I hope her family members can get there to see her today.

    I'm sorry it was too painful for Jennifer yesterday, but am praying that she'll be able to get to her feet today, then (baby steps) be able to take a few steps within another day or two.

My heart goes out to your sister and her DH - The NE has been hit BADLY with winter weather.

I dearly loved today's pictures - the dog with a leg around a goat - I can hear him saying, "This is MY lunch". LOL And that is one fat cat.

God's continued blessings on you, Laura
