On the up and up....

I am feeling much better this weekend, almost back to my normal self!
I also have some wonderful news- my baby girl is 3 months seizure free as of yesterday! I had my monthly meeting with her therapist today and we both feel there is no pressing issues we are concerned with for her developmentally. She is doing great!! She is a completely different child since starting day care and therapy.  She has developed such a personality and independence! She has just recently decided she wants to eat table food and loves it!! She is the sweetest thing. I do hear more and more often that she looks just like my dad and lately I see it so much more. Her actions are even very similar to him.  My mom and I were discussing last night how much Ansley loves men.  She wants Brandon, my father in law, or brothers to hold her anytime she is around them.  When she was a baby dad would hold her in his chair, on his tummy while Ansley slept (he did me, my brothers, and grandkids this way), oh how I miss seeing that!!
This weekend we had a memorial service for my dad at the hospital where is was employees for 30 years.  I've mentioned this before but the week after dad passed away the dialysis department at the hospital did a memorial in honor of dad that was placed on the hospital wall of the department.  The service Sunday was for all the hospital employees that passed away this year.  It was a very nice ceremony yet very hard.  On the back of the program these words where written:
And if I go while you're still here...
Know that I live on,
Vibrating to a different measure
-behind a thin veil you can not see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we will soar together again,
-both Aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart
...I will be there!!

I bolded the line "until then live your life to the fullest" because my dad would say that exact thing!! Are you living your live to the fullest??

Renee, Thank you for leaving your comment on my blog! You do know how I feel! Sounds like our Dads passed away within 4 days of each other. It has been such a long hard journey. I read a little about your daughter. I'm so glad the seizures are getting better. That has to be so scary for you and your family. I will pray for her and for you and your family :)
