I took Rachel to the orthopedic surgeon last Monday to have some new x-rays taken of her leg to see how it was healing. We had been praying that the bone would be healed enough so that the harness would be unnecessary. Sleep deprivation was becoming an issue (not so much for Rachel, but for me). The good news? It's all good news! She grew as much bone in two weeks as it would take me six to eight weeks to grow. The doc declared her well; the injury will not cause problems for growing or walking, much to my relief. That night she slept on her tummy again and gave me a six-hour stretch and I awoke feeling human again. Each of the kids has tried a short-cut to heaven, but fortunately for me, none have been successful.
