Cydney continues to put in hard work during her therapy sessions. She continues to progress each day, getting stronger and closer to coming home.
Working on standing on her own
Practicing counting on her fingers
In the past few days she has also started to mouth words, trying her hardest to get the sounds to follow. We are hopeful this means hearing her talk again is not too far off.
The past week we were all able to be together in Phoenix as a family. It was fun to have all the kids together again. Cydney enjoys having them there to laugh and play with. We call Nathan and Lily "Chaos" . Asking Cydney each morning if she is ready for Chaos to come, she laughs at this and nods her head. Seeing her laugh at Nathan's never ending "Booty" jokes and Lily's constant jabbering about wanting to eat is heartwarming to see.

Cydney and Nathan laughing with each other, as Nathan most likely is continuously saying "booty, booty don't smile Cydney"

Cydney remains in good spirits though it all
We have also begun the modifications at the house in order to prepare to bring Cydney home. We want to thank all that have contributed to the Welcome Home Cydney Fundraiser set up by our Squadron family. We hope to have a comfortable an adapted home for Cydney to come home to very soon. Having her in the comfort of her home as she begins Chemotherapy next month is something we feel will be a big boost to everyone's spirits. We all miss being at home together as a family and not having to shuffle between two cities.
