    Sammy, I've said it before and I'll say it are an inspiration to us all. Feeling pretty low right now but your happy smile has made me count my blessings one more time - thank you sweetheart, you are a star!

    Sam continues to do well.
    She was a trooper during the casting last week,
    and her first pair of legs are on order!

    The prosthetist called me at home later that day to tell me her shoe size will be 7.5,
    and that she needed to bring shoes for our next visit,
    so over the weekend she got a cute pair of shoes! We will be called when her legs are ready; I expect it to be sometime next month.

    She's also having her tendon release surgery on her left hand next month,
    and will spend at least one night at Cinti Shriner's. It will be good to have that
    finger straightened out, and then she can start wearing a pressure glove on that hand. Her skin is really looking good, thanks to the garments.

    The benefit in Bethel was lots of fun, and we met lots of great people --
    many thanks to the Aeolus Motorcycle Club.

    And, to top off all the excitement,
    Uncle John bought Barney tickets for us for Sam's birthday,
    and we will be going to see the big purple guy on April 2nd.
    I'm sure Sam will be beside herself!

    Thanks for continued prayers;
    also, there are some new pix in the photo gallery.

    Hey Sammy, I missed you at the beginning of this month but here you are again, looking very much alive and kicking with Barney under your arm.

    I think that leg thing is very exciting. It must be a good sign that we don't hear about you that often any more but we for sure think of you and keep our fingers crosse.

    What good news Sammy!

    Dear, sweet Sammy-girl!

    You are one very lovely human being, and your parents are so very blessed having you in their lives. I know that you all have had immense hurdles to overcome and there may be a few left for you, hopefully not.

    I have enjoyed your photos - love the one with your colorful friends - humans and stuffed!

    You brighten up so many lives, Ms. Sammy.


    Love and furry kisses,

    Sas and her campers in Vermont

    What a beautiful girl, and what a fighter, glad to hear you're doing better! The challanges you face will be nothing compared to what you and your family have already been through! Best of luck to you all!

    My life is God filtered :)
    Sweet Sammy:
    Thank you for bringing a smile to my face and showing me what life is all about. I look at your sweet face and I just melt and tears come to my eyes. You are such an inspiration to us all. So glad that things continue to improve. Continue prayers come out to you sweetie. God sure has his loving hands on you.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Isn't Sam just absolutely the most precious child, ever?

    This is getting to be an exciting time for her, and her parents.

    Sammy's got LEGS!!!!

    Friday, April 07, 2006 at 03:10 PM EDT

    Well, we spent most of this past week in Lexington,
    and Sam now has her legs at home.

    It was a little scary for her, and she still doesn't love having her legs on, but that's perfectly normal. For the next couple of weeks, she'll practice standing and walking--with a walker--for a couple hours a day, and we'll gradually add time until she's on her legs for most of the day.

    The prosthetist and therapists were great, and she actually enjoyed most of her time at Shriner's, as they have a wonderful playroom and really good hotdogs! They decided to go w/the strap-on legs as opposed to the type w/bolts, as the latter proved difficult to secure. I have photos and will put them in the gallery asap.

    Before we left for Lexington, Sam was able to see Barney, BJ & Baby Bop live at the Taft Theatre, and she LOVED IT. Thanks, Uncle John, Aunt Toni, and Cousins Jamie & Jordan!!! I actually had tears in my eyes at times during the show (no, not because of the songs, though that was certainly a possibility!) because it amazed me that not even a year after her illness, she was able to enjoy something like that. I never would have thought it possible last spring or summer. I felt the same way seeing her w/her new legs. Unless there's a problem w/the legs, we won't return to Lexington until early June.

    Her visit at Children's went fine today, and her kidney doc doesn't need to see her for a couple months, unless something unusual pops up in the labs. She will be admitted to Cinti Shriner's next Wednesday for an early Thursday morning tendon release, so it's a busy time for Sam. We should be home later Thursday or early Friday.

    Please keep Sam in your thoughts as she works hard to walk again and
    makes this next transition.
    Look for photos soon!


    NEAT-O !!

    GO, Sammy, GO!!
    We're with you all the way!!

    Can't wait for the photographs.

    What great parents little Ms. Sammy has...... it brings tears to my eyes everytime I read about this little tyke and her family and friends.

    Sammy is so loved by so many people, but especially her Mom and Dad!

    You go girl!

    Nothing quite brings me to tears as easily as a Sammy update.

    I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we can read about such incredible progress being made.

    May God continue to be with you each step of the way.
