Healing by the grace of God :)

An original acrylic on canvas I painted for Lindsay

Hi! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! Mine was wonderful, dinner at my daughter's house with lots of family and friends, very very lovely. God is good.
Exactly 7 weeks ago today  Lindsay sustained a TBI - Tramatic Brain Injury, when she crashed a scooter at 50-mpi, and hit her head. She was not supposed to survive, according to the doctors... but she did, according to God.
By the grace of God, she has improved each and every day. Yesterday, 12-1-10 was her first full day at the rehabilitation unit of the hospital.
Lindsay has been so blessed to have a mother who loves her with all of her heart and soul, being right there with her, her Nana, and my Austin being there too, as well as so many others who are praying daily for her healing.
We are absolutely LOVING being able to communicate with her. She does all kinds of funny little things, especially around Austin. He calls me and laughs while he tells me the little stories about things she has done. It is so awesome, for reals!
Please keep praying for Lindsay as she will have to work extremely hard to walk again, after the trauma of the injury, she tires very, very easily.
Man, we love that kid! God's strength to you my precious girl. You are loved so much it hurts :)
Here's a peek at the painting I gave Lindsay for Thanksgiving.
Thanks for all the prayers and love that have been sent our way. God bless.

My name is Pam. I am a 48 year old woman who has lived with a severe Traumatic Brain Injury for the last 5 years. I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's accident, but rejoicing at her progress. Keep your heart with God. The doctors are still learning how well the injured can survive. My doctors told my family to take me home and treat me as an advanced alzheimer's case. I went to rehab instead. Today I'm raising my 3yr. old granddaughter. I learned to walk, talk, bathe,eat,etc. in rehab. Then more therapy on an outpatient basis. I'm still not 100%. I see differences in my personality. Others deny it. I am disabled. All invisible.
I'm saying your daughter may be back 100%!!!Many are. I'll pray that she is one of them.
