Good news!

on January 16, 2014

Yesterday, after wearing a head-to-hip spinal brace for three months, my niece was allowed to take it off for good. When I heard the news I couldn’t stop laughing and leaping crazily around the house! She was the last of the five children to be given the green light, so things are definitely looking up.

Here is a photo of her next to her brother last year. And yes that is Gutsy9 (as a baby) on her shoulder. Bravo, my lovely niece!

    Julie, this is indeed wonderful news. It removes yet another visual reminder of the accident, and shows the strenght of spirit. Yes is a lovely young lady, and it time this will fade to just a bad memory for her and the rest of the kids involved. Take care, Bill
