Life goes on...

Well this past weekend was very busy for us!  We spent most of Saturday walking around @ the Woodland Art fair!  We did take the wheelchair in case Jordan wore herself out and I am happy to report she only rested a couple of times! She was determined to walk and she did it!  GO JORDAN!  Sunday we went to Special Olympics bowling so Jordan could visit with the athletes.  Both of the girls have been a unified partner for bowling/track since they were in the 5th grade! I don't know who was more excited, Jordan or the SOKY athletes! Jordan loved seeing everyone & not being treated any different than before surgery.It was good seeing everyone & I know that her partner will be glad to have her back next year bowling!  This year Jordan has decided to just help out in other ways & the SOKY family is glad that she can still be involved in some capacity!

 Jordan should have started back to classes yesterday as any other normal 19year old.  Instead we had yet another MD appt, this time for Medicaid.  Yes, we have applied for assistance since the medical bills just keep coming! That is what it is there for, people who have a REAL NEED for help. I pray that this will go in our favor! To be honest as a health care worker the exam was a complete joke but had to be done because of the people that ABUSE the system.  I will NOT get on that soapbox!  Instead of books this Fall Jordan will keep focused on rehab and pushing herself  so she can hopefully get back to MSU come January.  I will continue to be her cheerleader telling her every step of the way that she can do it!  Jordan's continues to amaze me everyday with her outlook on life!  Adversity is a daily thing for her but she doesn't let it get the best of her!

Taylor starts classes tomorrow & has auditions today for the percussion studio! I am so proud of the young woman she has become! Living in her 1st appt & her 1st real job with music @ GRC! Where did the time go??? Trevor is a Freshmen @ MCHS & football is keeping him & us busy! We are excited about football season and excited to see him wear #67 which was D's number in high school. Darian is a Senior this year and for all of you that are reading this that have had Seniors before know that her year will go by way too FAST!

This summer has put life in perspective for our family and I am very thankful for all that God has blessed me with and continues to bless me with.  For those of you that are reading the blog, "live one day at a time because we are NOT promised tomorrow"! As always our family thanks you for all the thoughts/prayers!  PRAY FOR JORDAN


  1. Sounds like things are settling in and going well! As much as I'm sure Jordan would rather be returning to school, I think rehab is a smart choice for now. Keep at it, you will get better and better!

  2. I am SOOOO proud of you Jordan! I had no doubt that you'd push yourself and succeed! Keep up the hard work! Taylor, I am SO proud of you as well! I always knew you would be great at anything and everything you do! I can't believe how fast the time has gone!!! What happened to my little 4th graders?! Love you all very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
