McKinley got to go to the beach!! We finally got the cast off and were able to spend some time at the beach. The only thing Scoot wanted to do was jump over waves and make "sand angels." And that's just what she, her brother, & sister did for over 3 hours! I'm sure she would have stayed longer, but it was getting chilly. I loved watching her be a kid again, and being able to enjoy what she likes best, (Besides dressing up and playing princess)! No worries about sand in the cast or getting the cast wet - it is a great feeling!!
We are preparing for cast # 6 on Wednesday. And while I pray for some great news (even the slightest change) I can't help but prepare for the worst as I sit again and hear Doctor M say the words "future surgery." I find comfort in God and remind myself that he will bring us through this journey. And am trying my best to trust in HIS plan. I don't know what I would do without McKinley's faith and strength, either. She shows a true testimony of faith as she says "God will make my back better." With those blue eyes and that pretty smile, who couldn't find comfort?
"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you will know God can move mountains."
Please continue to pray for McKinley, our family, and her doctors.
