My daughter loves Halloween.  Even as an adult, she has never totally outgrown "playing dress up". Costumes, parties and scary movies have been part of her yearly holiday repertoire for some time. She was invited to a party for this coming weekend and though her friends promised they would take great care of her, she realizes that there is risk of re-injury to her leg, and so she declined. I'm proud of her for that choice.

What will her Halloween entail now? Good question.

Like many aspects of her life, fright night is undecided. She returns to her surgeon next week for a 6 week check up and x-rays. We'll find out if she can ditch the wheelchair and start the process of walking again. It feels much like Groundhog's Day: will we have 6 more weeks of winter, or is spring on it's way?

With fingers crossed and a determined attitude borne of faith, we'll take whatever comes.
