My Daddy came over!

Yesterday, I had the biggest TREAT! My Daddy came over to my house! This might sound like something "little" or "trivial"... but, let me assure you, its not!  The last time that my Dad was at our house was on March 6, the day before he stumbled on the way to church and began having intense sciatic pain down both legs (which then led to walking with crutches, not being able to walk at all, a month-long stay at Rex Hospital, learning to walk again with a walker, spending the majority of day in bed, etc!).  It has been over 6 months...but yesterday DAD CAME TO MY HOUSE!!!! 


And not only that, but Dad kept showing off his increasing skills! Look at this: He is SITTING in my rocking chair holding my babies! (He hasn't been able to sit in MONTHS!!!)


And, Leah, this video is for you! Dad started walking up and down my hallway with just his cane and I said, "I've got to get this on video for Leah to see!!!!"  You won't believe it! Here is a video just for you:

I am SO EXCITED (if you can't tell by all the exclamation points in this post!)... God is continuing to answer our prayers!  Thank you, friends, for praying for our family!!!! They are working and God is to be praised!

  3. Okay we just got off the phone so you know, but this most made me straight CRY!!

    First of all, I can't believe dad is sitting in that rocking chair. What an answer to prayer that he can start adding a little bit of that back to his daily routine.

    Second of all, the video put me over the top. I wish so much that I could be there to see all of dad's improvements with my own eyes, but walking THAT FAST and WITHOUT A WALKER to me is just unbelievable.

    Thank you Tara for posting this video it means so much to me. Dad I am so proud of you, and I LOVE how big your smile is getting in all these pictures. You are just unbelievable!!

    Love you all!!
