Hello ladies!

Okay, so i'm at work and can't get a hold of anyone to tell them- so I'll just write it here! For those of you that don't know- my dad suffered an "injury" where he became handicapped. Complete near death experience. It was a spinal cord/brainstem hemmorrhage. This was last May. He spent 5 months in between the hospital and rehab. He had a trache for several months. And lost COMPLETE movement of everything except his eyes.. Since then, he's been in a wheelchair, and slowly gaining movement (except for his right hand). So my mom just called me- and he walked 70 steps in his walker!!! 70 STEPS! I'm sooooo excited! Now he can literally walk me down the aisle!! Less than a year ago we were at the hospital hoping he'd be able to talk again- now look how much he's improved!

I guess I can tell people in the office- but i'm just too emotional about this! I am sooooooooo happy- my face will be hurting soo from smiling!

OK, I just teared up reading your post!  That's such wonderful news, I'm so happy for you and your family!  I'm sure your dad has been using the goal of walking you down the aisle as part of his motivation to get better... it's really wonderful that he's improving so quickly.  Yay!!!!

Wow!  He's even marrying you too.  How special and exciting.  I can see why you had to leave work -- you're probably about to burst with happiness right now.  Congrats!
