Carrie is doing well today. She's been up and walking a few times. The PT people had her use a walker to help steady herself when she walked down the hall. I told her I'll have to get some tennis balls for the walker so she can look like the little old ladies. She doesn't seem to be as weak as yesterday, so that's good. Overall she's making good progress and things are going well.
I'm a Midwestern girl who's lived in Missouri, Utah, Missouri again, Nebraska, Mississippi and Iowa. This is my story of life with my farmer-turned-professor husband, two exceptional little boys, and one extraordinary little girl who happens to have Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. The stories you are about to read are all real; I couldn't make it up if I tried.
