Perseverance

Perseverance is a great word to describe KK's attitude and effort.  Some days are more emotional than others.  Even through the emotion, KK has been willing to do everything the therapists and medical teams have asked of her.

Today was one of those "more" days.  Physical and Occupational Therapies are especially hard with her loss of muscle control on her right side.  She cried during the first of two Physical Therapy times.  She expressed how she had no idea why she was crying, asked for a hug, then proceeded to do all the exercises she could remember before the therapist told her what to do.

This afternoon, KK laid down for a nap about 5 minutes before the Physical Therapist returned.  KK was exhausted and getting up was the last thing she wanted to do.  As soon as I reminded her that doing the Physical Therapy exercises would help her muscles get stronger, she got up and was ready to do everything Ms. Kelly asked her to do.  She even climbed up and down stairs...which is one step closer to going home!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
~ Hebrews 12:1
