A have 4 letters for you...

PTSD.

Just kidding. Seriously, we're fine.

We are home and all's well.  Had a little birthday party celebration for Murphy last night after dinner.  Harlie watched Ice Age and laughed for like an hour straight.  It was great to know she was laughing.  But I would give anything to know what her laugh sounds like!

I have so much catching up to do here at home.  The amount of paperwork that comes through my house is insane.

We got Harlie to walk a little - but she needs a great amount of support and she has no sense of balance (probably because she has no strength left in her legs).  I have no idea how long it will be before she can walk again.

Her back brace is going to take some getting used to.  Not just by her - but by us.  It seems to get loose pretty easily.  And I feel like it doesn't stay in position, which makes me worry.  Three months.  Good times!

That's all I have time for now.  Just wanted to let you know we made it safe and sound.

Thank you for all your support!

It takes some time to recover. I'm sure she'll be walking again soon. I'm glad Murphy had a nice birthday. I thought I saw video of her talking. She doesn't have a speaking valve? I'm confused about not hearing her laugh. Of course I understand why you'd love to hear it. Hugs. It's going to be another adjustment with the brace. Life goes fast. The brace will be off before you know it. Though at times the days may drag on.
