The Taping

No, it isn't a new movie :) Actually it is the therapy Rebekah does at home. 3-5 times a day. She has to tape her fingers down into a fist position. It is painful and difficult for her to do. It is especially painful to try to bend her index finger. At night she sleeps with a splint on her index and middle fingers to straighten them. The tape goes on top of a gauze glove so that she isn't having to repeatedly pull tape off her skin.

Yeah, I can imagine that that is painful - sounds like Rebekah is a trooper, though! You, guys have come so far!!

I am awed by all that has happened in the past 6 weeks. The human body is amazing; so are doctors, and God is the most amzing of all! Rebekah's hand is healing beautifully from what we can see in the pictures, and yea for Abigail being out of the cast. Being all together again is getting closer by the day!We're still praying for you all and will pray for the bus driver too. Nona
