Victorious Forgiveness

This girl.
This Victorious daughter.
How we have learned from her.....how we continue to be inspired.
Her FORGIVING nature.
Working SO hard in Occupational Therapy......and then a broken femur.......
Intense Pain.....misdiagnosed as hip strain causing her 24 hrs being treated with only ibuprofen.
More X rays....more waiting.....five attempted IV placements, and finally on number six we were able to get some morphine into her little body.
Overnight in the hospital in a temporary splint while trying to get her pain under control. We were behind the eight ball for sure and it felt like a losing battle.
Four days after the break a two hour trip to Shriners.
We were told in a typical child a pin would be placed.
When a child has been severely malnourished for eight years and given no opportunity to bear weight the bones are severely compromised.
No pin.
Major casting under anesthesia.
4-8 weeks casted.
Forward progress halted.
My weaker self can easily get caught in the "what it's" the frustration, the blame.
And again, she teaches us....
Victoria chooses joy.
Victoria chooses strength.
Victoria chooses forgiveness.

A little help from brother.

She be FIERCE!

She is so LOVED!
