Today was another great day in the books! 
Occupational Therapy was the usual session in the morning- getting dressed.  
Christy's second session was Physical Therapy.  Christy walked all the way to the gym/cafeteria on the second floor.  When they got there, Jody from PT told them that
 today's session would be in the wellness center.  The wellness center is the gym downstairs in the basement.  Don has a 
"membership" as well as some of the staff members.  He does his running on the treadmill here.  Once they got downstairs, Jody had Christy get on the Elliptical machine for about 3-5 
minutes at level 1!!  She did great.  Don sounded pleased with this choice of exercises because it was perfect for Christy's right Hip
 which needs more stretch and mobilization. Christy has a hard time extending the right leg backward from the hip.  The Elliptical seemed to give Chris full extension of both her legs and her hips.  After the Elliptical, Jody and Christy got on the yoga mat and did a lot of different types of stretching.  She also had her laying in a
 bunch of different positions. 
Here is a great picture of Chris sitting fabulously in an Indian style sitting position!  Christy really enjoyed her session in the wellness center, she kept saying  how much she was enjoying being down there on those machines.  It's like a mini-24hour fitness!  

After an exciting Physical therapy session, Christy had speech and more OT, but they focused on the same things that Chris has been working on that we've been talking about. 

Another real exciting thing that happened today is that Craig found a Queen size bed to replace Christy's other hospital bed so Don and Chrsity can cuddle while they enjoy a good night's sleep together.  Getting back to normal life is good!! 

Kaeo and I will be taking Mom Gail to the airport tonight!  She's going up to visit Chrsity and Don till next week!! 

If you're interested in getting an iheartchristy pink wristband like the one Christy's wearing...
 please contact Christy Jacobson  by email at:  they are $2.00 each and very cute!!!

BTW, One of Christy’s friends from Hawaiian, Brenda Inouye, who started a fundraiser for her by selling World’s Finest Candies is stuck with about 5 more cases of the almonds and was just wondering if anyone who would be able to help sell or buy?  They sold 21 cases for Christy but now having a little hard time getting rid of the rest. They are $2.50 a box and there is 50 boxes in a case.

 If someone can help with that please contact:

  1. As always mama, you shine like a rare gem!!! So amazing what GOD is doing in your life.....I enjoy reading what your days are like....I know how much you miss home, cause we are all missing you like crazy....I am counting the days until your return....I just wanted to share a couple of scriptures for you and Don to read.....Sonny boy received one of them from just reading and then GOD revealed this to him....
    1 Peter 4:19 (New Living Translation)

    19 So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.

    And then this one too...
    Isaiah 41:10 (New Living Translation)

    10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
    Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you.
    I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

    I love you mama and miss you very much....Keep up the great work...hopefully when you get back, you can make me more motivated to go back in the gym so that I can get my booty shrinking, LOL!!! Loving the new hair, btw!!! Always in my prayers and thoughts xoxoxoxo Rene Muuuuuaaahhh!!
