Jill's Journey

Hopping her way towards a (hopefully) cancer free life three legs at a time

A New Milestone for Jill

Filed under: Uncategorized — rica55 at 8:54 pm on Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Well, it only took 7.5 months….

Tonight, I was filming Jill (naturally) and she must have known the camera was on, because she decided to PERFORM.  Since her amputation, Jill has not been able to jump on the bed without the help of a large pillow step.   Tonight, for the first time since surgery, I present:

I was so happy, so full of pride, I could burst.  I honestly stopped noticing the pillows a while ago and just accepted them as our new way of life.  It didn’t even bother me, she’s a little thing, she’s got a tiny back leg, of course she needs help getting up on my bed.  And really? this long after surgery she would magically jump on the bed with no help?  YES!

Let’s go to the video replay:

Four days post amputation:

One month ago:

So, this may not seem like a HUGE milestone, but to me, this is big.  To me, it just means shes still getting stronger, all these months later.  I’m so proud of my baby.

So happy for Jill! She is such an inspiration! My little baby continues to surprise me, too. These girls know how to adapt 🙂 Keep those videos coming!

It IS a big deal! Another thing it means, to me, is that she feels well. I know lately she’s been a little punky, and I don’t think she would go to the trouble to navigate around the floor pillow and jump from the floor if she didn’t feel great. Her confidence is there, and that’s as important as strength.

I’m proud of her, too!

Woot, woot, Jilly! I bet you have been practicing while your mom wasn’t looking, haven’t you? Google job that Bruddah didn’t tell on you.
