So real breifly we are doing good. Carol continues to make health progress. She mentioned to me today when I hold her hand she can actualy feel my fingers on her thumb and pinky....really good stuff. Fiya was so on the run that I couldn't seem to get a straight on shot. She was a lady bug for halloween. As I was typing this Willow dropped our photography from our last session. More to come tonight. Looking back at all of these pictures reinforces the fact that I need to learn how to style girl hair. I swear it is impossible:(

Other stuff. We have decided to go to the in-laws for birdday, and stay here the rest of the holidays. Carol spends all day and night on her legs/or with her legs on. We went out to eat here in town for the first time ever without a wheelchair. Lots of good stuff happening. Her personal goals I sense are shifting to her blindness now. Now that she can basically walk, even though she loves er current prosthetics, she isn't totally satisfied with them. I am guessing with all amputees your prosthetics are constantly evolving in their efficacy. Anyhow, Carol want to really get out in the neighborhood as a blind person, using the blind cane, and all the stuff that goes along with that. Finding possible vocational training, or setting up some sort business (profit or not) to raise awareness of what has happened to her/us. A ways back I bought her a nice voice controlled laptop...she hopes to get better using that is well. Those are the more midterm length of goals she has for now. Thanks again for eveyones constant help and attention to us.

I didn't think it was possible for the girls to get anymore beautiful! I just want to squeeze them.

So great to hear about the feeling in your hand Carol. Amazing how the body can heal itself, I am so happy for you!

Carol so glad your getting more feeling in your hand. Your voice laptop sounds awesome. You are always making great progress. Way to go girl!
Scott - you do a great job styling the girls hair. Even if you got it perfect, it only takes them seconds to destroy it. So sometimes it's better to not worry about it. At least that's obviously what I do.
