ARDEN UPDATE #19: Good News from Seattle!

Well, the Spica came off today, and the brace went on. After 8 long weeks of cheerful endurance, Arden’s Spica cast days are over! We are thrilled and relieved for her finally to reach this milestone. I love the look on Dr. Blumberg’s face reflected in the mirror. This is a big moment for him too.

Arden, her mommy, and Tata (her other grandmother, a.k.a. Hilda Rodriguez) celebrated by going to the Seattle Aquarium. They’ll head home (Anchorage and Orlando respectively) this evening.

Now begins the hard work for Arden to learn to walk again. A while back, my close friend Lori Lambelet faced a similar road to recovery from a broken femur. Lori wrote,

“It is crazy how much she will have to concentrate to walk. But the pictures you share display a very spirited young lady, who is very strong and excited to be free!”

Yes she is! This little ezer has a lot of fight in her. Based on Arden’s determination so far and the prayers of family and friends, I’m betting on her to succeed. After all, “Arden is one tough little kid!”

Please keep her in your prayers.
