“It’s when ordinary people rise above the expectations and seize the opportunity that milestones truly are reached.”  Mike Huckabee 

Shortly after I started this Blog and my 365 Project back in January . . . my MIL fell and broke her hip.  She is 92 years old, so we were quite worried and concerned about her future.  Luckily, it was a fracture, not a break  . . . and she healed so well, beyond the expectations of Doctors and Physiotherapists.  After months of Physio, we were able to get her up to the summer home in the Interior of BC where she has spent her summers for many, many years.  Fear of falling has been her biggest hurdle since the accident, so there were many challenges to be faced in the more rugged surroundings.  

Kudo’s to her!  With determination and help from a neighbor who is a retired Physiotherapist . . . she is now walking, with the aide of hiking poles, from the cabin and up the steep driveway to the main road.  This is a major accomplishment for her, as she would do nothing without her walker when we left her at the beginning of the summer.  She is still fearful of falling, but is not allowing the fear to stop her in her tracks.  I’m so proud of her!  She is such an inspiration . . . and she turns 93 in just a few days!  

Talk about Milestones eh??
