Oh, YAY!!!! I am SO thrilled to see these amazing photos today. Keep up the great work. Sounds like going home is just a few more steps away, literally. Fasting and prayers and definitely being heard and answered.

Jodi, this is great news. We know it is still a long recovery. But it is neat to see progress. What a difference a week makes! We hope next week will be that much better and tomorrow you will be enjoying a trip back to Riverdale. Thanks for keeping us informed on the blog. We check this multiple times a day for frequent updates and great pictures of improvement.

Holy cow! You look great. After all your surgeries and complications, I'm shocked to see you looking so good.

This is a true testament to your inner strength. How good it must feel to be able to cuddle with your honey.

Keep going, keep moving, and when you're in pain, remember that moments like that make everything worth it.
