Fighting Spirit

This picture is a lie. But I like it anyway. Well, not a lie, but it hides the truth. The report is that they were not able to get ahead of the pain all night. Pain spasms continued non-stop from after surgery and casting, which were done mid-afternoon, until about 5 AM. Debbie was able to capture these fleeting smiles before they went on leave again.

This is testimony to a spirit that fights for any bright little thing. And to a mom and grandmother who fight every little thing for the owner of this beautiful smile. It's going to be a long haul. Thank you God, for Natalie's smile. Now please, could we maybe get more of these today. And when not these, some real good sleep and rest?
