six flags and the person next to you
Well today was 101 in Dallas and my wonderful mother took Brighton and his cousin Rick to 6 flags today. They were there before it opened and stayed until almost 7PM. My mother saw someone pass out form the heat and thought that she was going to also. She said that she only really spoke to one other person at the park, a woman that lives in Prosper, just North of us. This dear lady was also with her grandsons at the park. They started talking about the grand kids and the woman mentioned that she watched her special needs granddaughter most days, who is 6 and severely disabled. She, like Molly is very high tone and has problems with her legs. The woman then proceeded to tell my mother about this miracle surgery that they went to Galveston for several months ago. Yes, the PERCS procedure by the same doctor that will do Molly's surgery. She had her groin and ankles done. Her grandmother told my mother how she cried for joy when she saw how much relief her granddaughter received from the procedure. She told my mother how easy it is now to change her diaper. She can relax her legs now. My mother had been very unsure about our decisions to go to UTMB, thinking that we were a bit crazy but now says she knows it is the right thing. Thank you God for providing the people we need in our lives when the time is right.
