In the meantime, the doctor prescribed her to have as much activity as possible. This is crucial in helping everything. However, it is very difficult to get a girl who is tired and does not feel well to do much of anything. We had her walk halfway around the block when she got back from the hospital. Lots of crying, but we did it. She is especially whiny and non-compliant for Jerad and I, so we called on some of her army to help us out. Before dinner, her neighbor friends Madden and Regan came over and they just did a little sand art project on the front porch. When she is engaged in something, there is no crying! This lasted for about an hour. Then more resting and after dinner she was outside again. The weather is so perfect now..almost cool! So my friend Nicki had this awesome idea to have the kids in the neighborhood do a scavenger hunt. She made them a list and had Ally take pictures of everything as they found them. They walked around our big block this time, keeping her engaged and active. Jerad and I quietly disappeared for this, as she looked over at me once and I saw a look of crying come to her face. Ally loved this so so much. She asked to do another one. Then another. Now Nicki is talking about writing one to do at Fox Hill (my Dad's house), one for the baseball game Wednesday night, one at the playground, etc etc. Whatever works.
I also had several people mention to me today that they would have gone bald if they had known we were doing it. So I may have to arrange another "go bald" party. I heard that my Dad went bald today too! Can't wait to see and post a picture of that.
Look at my lovely 124 loyal followers over on the side. Ally's Army is growing everyday. There are actually 900 people that have looked at the blog this month and almost 300 people do so every day! I was looking through some info and we now have people following her in 46 of the 50 states. Several from Canada, Australia, even Portugal. The prayers are coming from all over, and I will take whatever I can get. Thanks for all of the supportive comments and letting us know you care. It means so much.
