Today was another great day. Millie is tried and not dancing around the room anymore, but she does have bursts of energy here and there, she is still laughing, smiling, and playing jokes on people.
When I was a little girl I loved 7 Brides for 7 Brothers and I watched it with her today. She giggled the whole way through. She loved it when the girls were tricking the boys and dumping water on their heads, but her favorite part seemed to be the dance scene when they are fighting over the girls before the barn raising. It was always one of my favorite movies and it made me giddy to watch it with her.
She hasn't wanted anyone else to stay with her at the hospital as she wants to be with us as much as possible. Jeff (Brady's dad) offers nearly every day to come spend the night with her, but she hasn't let him during this stay. Brady talked to her about it, and she was happy to have grandpa come as long as Brady stayed until she was asleep. It will be so great to spend some time with Brady. It seems we only see each other for moments as we trade off shifts at the hospital.
Austin spent the day with his nana (Brady's mom) and he had a great time. He couldn't stop talking about the deer he saw at her house. I also came home to sparkling floors which was a wonderful surprise. Thanks mom! Cousin Sherry also called and offered to make my tutu for Millie's Princess Race on Saturday, so now I don't have to worry about that either. I am always amazed at the love everyone has for us and how willing they are to help. Honestly don't know what I would do without the support of so many people.
Another day down, and with each passing day, we feel encouraged.
ALSO, Tune into KSL tomorrow at noon. Millie's race is being featured!
