Lydia on TV!

The highlight of our day today, was welcoming Abigail Binmann from CTV to our home to interview Lydia on how it feels to be home. Lydia was happy to smile, play piano and talk about being home.
It is truly great to have Lydia home with us -  to tuck in each child at bed at night, and then sleep in our own bed.  The 6:00 and 11:00 news feature different segments.

Here is the video:

In other media, Scott Cressman, a New Hamburg Independent reporter, wrote a story about Lydia's return to home that was published on Wednesday.  It contains some great and at times candid quotes from Lydia!

Lydia began private pilates instruction this morning, to help her with her physical therapy.  She was happy to return to a studio and teacher she knows and enjoys.  At times, I fight back the tears, when I see how far she has to go, or how hard it is for her to make seemingly easy movements. Some of Lydia's therapy goals in pilates are to improve her breathing, (she has developed very shallow breath patterns as a result of having had a collapsed lung), and to strengthen her legs and positioning so she can move between sitting and standing, and can walk properly.  Lydia has a very ambitious goal of playing soccer in May 2013.  We encourage her in her goals, but see the reality of how far she will have to heal and progress before that can happen.  With faith, all things are possible.  We continue to pray for a full recovery.

Eph 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do, immeasurably more, than all we ask or imagine, according to His power, that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, throughout all generations, for ever and ever.  Amen!

His power is at work within us.  We give thanks.
