Thankful for this Day

Tomorrow marks 1 year since Kimbrey was hit by a car. I think about that horrible accident every day- it HAUNTS me. I hear the sounds and see flashbacks almost every time I close my eyes. 

She's still not back to normal (and probably won't ever be), but we are AMAZED by where she has come. She runs, jumps, bends, rolls- pretty much everything she used to do! The only thing she absolutely cannot do is scratch herself with her back left leg (which means we are constantly scratching her!).

The strength and perseverance that Kimbrey has is amazing. We thought she might die after the accident, or at least be permanently paralyzed, but thanks to a lot of love, great vets, and intense therapy, she is more beautiful than she ever was before. 

We are so thankful for this day.

Here are a few videos of her progress from last year:

Picking her up after 3 days in the hospital

A few days later

About 1 week later

2 weeks and 3 days later

3rd week of therapy, around 5-6 weeks after incident

Tomorrow we have an appointment at Indiana Veterinary Alternatives to possibly do acupuncture and talk about the herbs Kimbrey is on (which we think has helped her healing a lot!). I'll try to get some videos of her walking and running; the progress from last year is mind blowing.
