Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


In the Air

Change. Its all around us. So much happening in the upcoming weeks. I'm trying so hard not to dread the changes, but to anticipate how much Ash's life will change for the better because of them. Keeping in mind that the dreams we have for our daughter are still there, still in reach, still possible.

Friday morning we will pick up Ashley Kate's leg braces.

Last Wednesday I received a letter in the mail informing me that her wheel chair had been approved by the insurance.

Then on Friday we were told the chair was here, it is ready for her, they are just waiting on the seat back which they expect to come in early next week.

Life is changing for Ash. Her world will be expanding. Freedom to move about will finally become hers and I can't imagine what that might feel like for our tiny girl.

Tonight we are trying to decide where to add ramps to the house, what type of lift system our car may need to have added on, and such things. Things I never dreamed we'd be discussing for one of our children. Life is funny. Some times it doesn't make sense. It just doesn't.

Ash has picked up whatever was going around at Allie's school. So far no fever just the cough, congestion, and such. We canceled all of her classes and therapy for this week to give her a chance to rest and hopefully fight off the worst of it all. She's happy, just stuffy. Still smiling, still being sweet, just not sleeping at night. She can't breathe that well when she's lying down.

Its been a little numbing around here today. Not sure I can put my finger on it. Just feels different for some reason. Change is hard. Still I know it takes change to make us grow.
