It's what we are forced to do. We stand by on the sidelines of her life willing things to go well but having no ability to make it happen. I wish we could do more. So much more.
Ash has not bounced back. It's been almost a week and she's not the same little girl she was. Our hearts hurt over what she's lost. She is so weak. Her strength is gone. She doesn't play. She doesn't move about the house. She doesn't smile very often. She doesn't stand for more than a few seconds at a time. We tried to encourage her to take a few steps in her walker, but she just can't do it anymore. There has been no swimming, swinging, or bike riding. Just lots of resting I'm so sad to see her feeling this way.
I guess it's just going to take her a little longer than it did last time. Our hearts are heavy as we stand by and watch her struggle. It's just so sad.
