Briley's first full day back at home!

Briley is still waking up in pain at night, but she only got up twice last night needing pain meds.  She's had a pretty good day today.  She's needed pain meds 3 times throughout the day.  We had a few visitors.  A couple of Briley's friends came over along with her cousins.  She played some, but otherwise watched the other kids run around the house.  She'll be able to join them running around soon!  She's been eating a little better.  Her diet has consisted of only scrambled eggs and great grandma's homemade bread!  We can't get her to eat anything else!  She got a bath today.  We laid her on the kitchen bar on towels and washed her hair over the sink.  Other than that, there's not a whole lot to report.
I plan to go back to work on Tuesday.  That's a big maybe because I have no idea how Alicia can take Briley to the potty by herself.  So if anyone has a wheelchair bound kid that would like to give some pointers, we would appreciate it!
KFDX TV-3 called today and said that they would like to come over tomorrow to do a follow up story on Briley.  We are grateful for Ryan for doing a wonderful job with the stories and keeping everyone informed of her progress.  
We are counting are blessing because things could have been lots worse.  Yeah, our Briley has been through her fair share of crap in her young life, but she and Bryson are still here.  She will walk again.  Bones will heal.  Gloria's passing will be easier with time.  We are grateful to live in Seymour, Alicia's roots in Munday, and in this area of Texas.  Briley has received get-well cards from all over this area.  We appreciate everyone one of them.  
Tonight, please say a prayer for the Chambers family from Wichita. Their little girl has recently diagnosed with leukemia.  I was fortunate enough to be able to meet them while we were at Cooks.  In fact, it was their second day diagnosed when we met.  I could tell they were scared of what will happen, as were we when Briley was first diagnosed.  
I want to personally thank everyone who has been reading the blog, so Thank You!


  1. Can Alicia have Briley wrap her arms around her neck while Alica slides her other arm under to support her legs? I dunno how y'all do it bc of her legs?
