After the scare of Poppy's heart attack one week ago today, we had a second scare on Friday. A Good Samaritan called my cell phone and informed me that Brian's grandparents, who live here in East Texas, had been involved in a car accident. The rescue crews were using the "jaws of life" to extract his grandfather & then transporting them to the hospital. I called both Brian and Matt and they met them at the hospital upon arrival. Thankfully, they both checked out ok and were released. Two big scares in the same week complete with 3 huge blessings!
After a stressful week, we enjoyed a relaxing Saturday of college football on the patio. Daddy smoked meat on his new birthday smoker all day, and everything he cooked turned out fantastic! We were all stuffed! On Sunday we took Kennedy to visit the East Texas State Fair before getting our grocery shopping completed at Sam's. Kennedy was too short for the rides, but she seemed to enjoy riding around in the stroller seeing so many new things. Surely by next year she will be tall enough to ride the rides.
Drake is continuing to work hard with his therapies and with us! We definitely see improvements with his grip, head control, strength, and vision. These are all areas that take time, but it's nice to see improvements. It's also delightful to see the excitement of his therapist when they, too, are noticing improvements.
It's crazy to think by this time next week we will be a family of 5! Hopefully our plan will fall into place and we will have smooth sailing; however, even if we encounter yet another bump in the road, I know things will be ok. We are a family of survivors and we are never alone.
