"Patience is a Virtue"

To All of the People Who Follow Jacoby's Recovery.... " Patience is TRULY a Virtue." 
 My "hat is off"  to all of you who have experienced an injury that leaves you waiting for the moment when the tiniest bit of change occurs; this is enough to make the toughest person lose their mind! 
In addition, "thank you" to all of you who have waited and waited AND WAITED for Jacoby's mother to write another blog. You see, it's not that easy; change happens slowly and the days are compiled of events "only a mother" could find value in...or not? Recently, I was urged to not just write when a "big change/event" happens, but even the dumb stuff. Therefore, I assume no responsibility when it comes to the excitement level of Jacoby's blogs; your wish is my command!
Since our last blog, here are some "new happenings" for Jacoby and our family:

1.  Palm Sunday was our FIRST WEEK BACK AT CHURCH since the accident...it was an emotional reunion. We were so happy to be back....to be home!

2.  Jacoby has started intense physical therapy with "Vertical Therapy". Her trainer, Chris Hegge, comes to our home every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 2 hr sessions.  She has been working out on the stim bike and is working on rebuilding muscle. She has had no new movement since her left wrist, but she grows in strength daily. We remain hopeful!

3.  Jacoby goes back to school TOMORROW!!!! She will go Monday-Friday,  for the last two classes of the day. She will be able to finish out her 9th grade year with her class AND her twin brother. (this was IMPORTANT..lol) GO BRUINS!!!

4.  Jacoby went back to Roach Gymnastics for the first time last Friday.  She had a GREAT time with her buds.  She was SO PROUD of her teammates....THEY ROCKED THE HOUSE that day!

FINALLY...THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT....THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING WITH US FOR A MIRACLE..WE LOVE YOU!

"AND THE GOD OF ALL GRACE,WHO CALLED YOU TO HIS ETERNAL GLORY IN CHRIST, AFTER YOU HAVE SUFFERED A LITTLE WHILE, WILL HIMSELF RESTORE YOU AND MAKE YOU STRONG, FIRM AND STEADFAST."--1 PETER 5:10

  1. Praise God! I have been checking the blog lots lately and was so eager to see another post. I am praying for a miracle with you...but it is so evident that God has already given so many miracles along the way! I love celebrating each and every one of them with you. There are no "small" miracles in life :) Love you, Miles Family!

  4. Hello,

    I'm from Brazil and I'm following your blog since last year. I'm sorry about my mistakes, because my English is not very good.
    It's really nice to see how brave you are, I like to read it and I'm so happy with your improvement.
    You are teaching us a very important lesson, no matter how big is our problem, we have to face it the best way we can, never give up.
    I told my friends here about you and we are praying for you and your family.
    Keep working this hard!
    Sending good thoughts from here!

    Love,
    Luciana.
