From laying in bed all day to walking?!?! WOW!

Hey all,

I just wanted to give you a quick update on Crystal. I went by my mom's house this past Saturday and was promptly called back to Crystal's bedroom. With some assistance from my mother she was able to sit up in the bed, and once she was stable was able to sit there without any assistance. Previously she would list to her left, and eventually fall over. Then she amazed me further by being able to stand with support from her bed. The smile on her face after seeing that was amazing.

As if that was not enough, her angel of a physical therapist had her walking with the assistance of her walker the other night. She was successfully able to walk from her bedroom to the living room (with a few breaks to sit down). Not only is it amazing how far she is progressing, but it warms my heart to see her smile because of her accomplishments.

Thanks again for keeping Crystal in your thoughts and prayers, because that coupled with a great physical therapist, and Crystal's will to get better is really making a difference.

Talk to you all soon,

Kevin (Crystal's Brother)
