Getting Stronger

by | Oct 28, 2011 | This Lefe Family

Ali is getting stronger each day.  The right medications have made all the difference!  She was cleared by her doctor on Tuesday to be able to go back to school.  Yesterday she went for a few hours and today she went for a couple.  She is wiped out when she gets home.  This is going to take awhile.

I’m thankful her teachers have been understanding and helpful in assisting her to get back on track.  She’s not there yet, but she’s making progress.  The conversation I had with her guidance counselor on Monday was very encouraging!

I’ve had to continue to let go of my preconcieved ideas of how this storm in our lives will play out.  I’ve had to continue to give each day to God.  I’ve also had to release my control of anything I thought I had control of.  I have NO control over anything. 🙂 

Monday night Ali and I drove to her volleyball team’s first game of the regional tournament for state.  It was a sad night, as she sat in the stands next to me in her team warm-up jacket…cheering her team on as if she was playing.  She wasn’t able to finish her Senior season of volleyball, missing the last three weeks of the season.  Tears flowed from her eyes after the game, as she said goodbye to it all.  My heart ached for her.  This isn’t how it was supposed to end.  We never expected her Senior volleyball season to play out like it did…first with her hip/back issues early in the season, and mono hitting her the end of the season.  Again, we have NO control over anything.  I’m thankful for the handful games she was able to play…pain free and healthy.

Medical bills started arriving in our mail box today.  The big one for today is from her physical therapists regarding her hip/back problem this fall…$500+.  Christmas for the Lefebures might be a little lean this year.  But seeing Ali get a little stronger each day has been the greatest gift.  I am very thankful to God! 

We will continue to trust God and to pray for continued healing and blessings in Ali’s life!
