Not to take a THING away from any other here, but I do not think I've personally seen anyone MORE Proud of their kids then Keith;Nor do I sense there are many more Grateful to God for all the blessings bestowed upon him then he has shown to me and many.

He gets any more proud he'll bust the buttons off his shirt and in this weather, he'll end up with frostbite of the chest hairs!   :eek:    :scared:    :knothead:

Ain’t that the truth Doc !!!!
Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

Thanks again Fred and Doc I surely appreciate all of you and everyone who jumped on the Prayer Wagon with us during Darci's hand surgery and heart surgery last summer as well!
 Darci is home now and sucking on a sugar daddy lollipop she got at a restaurant on the way home.
  She has the smallest little pink splint she will wear while sleeping and several hours during the day while undergoing therapy on using her new thumb.
  It doesn't bend much yet due to a pin that held the finger on so it would graph to the hand itself but it looks like the nerves and muscle are good.  
  I know how she feels cause as many know I had all my fingers pinned back on as well years ago and it took some time to bend my joints but therapy is the key to recovering and Many prayers above all things..
 She is one tough little girl and we are so thankful to have her and our other two daughters as Arrows in my quiver!    :archer:  
   Thank you Father for answered prayers and Glory to the Highest !    :pray:

Today her therapy was to pick up little marsh mellows with her new thumb and first finger which used to be her (middle) and as many know now her thumb was actually her first finger but moved to function as a thumb.
 She was able to sort of rotate it around a little so that is a good sign.
 She is now putting small leggo's together making a castle and doing a remarkable job at that!
  So here is a     :thumbsup:   to Darci doing a great job in her therapy.

Darci, I just want you to know you're a brave little girl.     :thumbsup:    :thumbsup:  

God has blessed you with two great parents and sisters; a family that serves and loves Him.  

It puts a smile on my face, when I hear your Dad speak of you.  I have two daughters that have both had serious medical conditions, but God has always stepped in, shown His power, His Authority, and His presence in their lives -like He has in yours.  

Give all the love you have; because God is love.

Hang in there girl; you've got a great life ahead, God has big plans for you all.

Got a text the other day showing a pic of her arm...Earlier pics of skin that looked pretty oogly under the cast all that time, now has washed off and it looks much more like the health skin of a young lassies' arm.

Much work yet to do for her at this tender age, but having had Pappa go thru much the same, I'm sure she'll get a good workout on PT...

I teased Keith about the marshmallows she had to manipulate and "could eat those she grasped well" that he'll next have dental bills with that motivator for such a sugary snack!  :)

Prayers continue for the Wee One!  :)

I got to wondering how Darci was coming with her rehab and such so I emailed ole Keith... he replied that Darci is done with all her rehab and she's using that new thumb like it was an original...

Which is great... He shared that his eldest, who helps out with watching the younger sisters during summer is off on a church retreat so prayers up for her to know a great time and have safe travels for she and her friends.

I think she's to be back by now...

Thank You Doc and Yes Ande is back from her Church trip to Virginia and our Youth Pastor has served this great Country for 30 years with 4 years Marines and rest in Army and still his family has moved her to Md. to serve God with doing many things with our Youth.
 He planned a trip to the Naval Base and teens got to see quite a bit like the Big gun ships and an Aircraft carrier then stayed in camp from my understanding. They went to Bush Gardens for a day and the beach another. Anyway they all had a great time and we are Blessed to have such a great Youth Pastor that gets the teens off the streets and learning about Christ and serving others.
 Ande gets to go to a Homeless shelter once a month to serve dinner to not just grown ups but children as well and she enjoys serving and being there.
 Now little Darci is one tough little squirrel monkey as we call her.
 That child can do about anything with what God gave her and if she can't do exactly as we she figures out a way and adjusts her hands to do so.
  The hand looks Awesome but she is back to using a pencil or crayon between her middle fingers and not the thumb and first finger.
 She does use that thumb to ride her bike and grab a cup and hold it or a ball and it does help having that first finger moved to the thumb position.
 Only time will tell but for now it's been healing very well.
One day I will take a updated picture so folks can see how good it looks .
  Thanks for all the continued prayers and everyone Have a Happy and safe Independence day! :thumbsup:

Doc,
 Yesterday I came home and got in the above ground pool we got for the girls several years ago and Darci wanted to take off her life vest float and try to swim all by herself.
 I worry more then my wife I think and I was holding her up and guiding her and let go and she swam like a turtle picking her head up for a breath of air and made it all the way across a 24 foot pool. she can't swing her arms over her head or rotate them but she can surly kick and wiggle like a turtle . Amazed me but I put the vest back on and told her I'll keep working with her cause I just ain't ready to throw her out the nest to see if she can fly on her own yet.
 Since day one I always had my hands under her to catch her on the swing set and those climbing rock things but she sort of push's me away and says I can do it .
  It sort of brings to mind how God is always there to catch us when we fall sort of thing but being a Dad is a gift from God and I am Blessed and Thank our Father for giving me the chance in life to be one.
  Sometimes I fail on my walk with Christ and sometimes it can be daily and our Father reminds me He is always there to catch me and brush me off and His Holy Spirit says "Try Again".
  I love these girls and watching them grow is Happy and Sad at the same time cause I know I must let them go on their own one day .
  Thanks Doc for asking and as always you are a good friend I met here and I want you to know you are like a Big brother to me and a wise man that I am blessed to be friends with.You are a "Brother " and I mean that Doc. :archer:

Dang Keith...

You making an old man bleed thru his face (blush) but thanks forthe kind words...

As you said, Darci will find a way!  She's got some moxey, and that is a good bad thing...bad for daddykins who worries and good she will not quit! :help:

Give her space and time, as our Lord gives us free will to choose, stumble and fall when we need to... but the pool is a pretty definitive place to play... you don't get lots of 2nd chances breathing water without gills... and that's spelled differently then GIRLS... :)

Keep the faith
