(Susan:) Today's rehab was tough. Tessa has come to worry alot about land therapy and today was quite painful. She did a phenomenal job though. In the pool, she was working with flippers on her feet (it is tough to move without bending her knee which is, of course, the point). Both Ms. Jennifer and Mr. Chris feel Tessa is making good progress. I think it will take months for her to regain flexion in her knee and progress will be measured in a degree or two each day.
After therapy, we made a trip to the JoAnn's (YEAH!!). We bought fat quarters of fabric and a backing for Tessa's new quilt and some fun art supplies. It was 70 degrees and absolutely gorgeous for a March day today. Hopefuly tomorrow we can get outside between therapies and dig in the dirt, always good therapy if you ask me!
We are making brownies tonight and watching last night's American Idol. Tomorrow we take Ruth Ann and Sam with to rehab so they can take over the reins next week when I return to work. Thank God tomorrow is Friday; it has been an exhausting week. Here are some fun pictures from our day:

• Daily Obscure Song Lyric:
"I can talk these words that will sound so sweet
They will even make your little heart skip a beat
Heal the sick, raise the dead
And make the little girls talk outta their heads"
