365 Days

Today is day 365!!!  365 days ago, Emilie received a very large gift of bone marrow from Nicolas (story here).  We are so thrilled that Emilie has been doing well for the last year.  Her lab results are normal and her monthly clinic visits are now every two months.  She is working really hard at physical therapy and she is getting some return in her right leg.  She is able to walk with her "short" right leg brace and her "long" left leg brace....eliminating rehab equipment is a super good thing!!!  We are so grateful to God for Emilie's health and for the love and support from our family and friends.  Day 365 is a good day indeed!
