Ask anyone and they will tell you that walks at the hospital in halo traction and hooked up to an I.V pole are not easy, but it is a welcome relief to finally get out of the bed for a while.

One of Clare’s favourite things in the hospital is music therapy. Jesse always brought a smile to Clare even on the very hard days.

Lifts in our house will be one of the ways to help our family and get Clare in and out of her wheelchair. When we stay in the hospital we usually get a room with a lift. It’s like a winch from the ceiling that has a sling for Clare to sit in. Clare loves it as well because it is much easier on her body than mom and dad doing the clean and jerk to lift her into her chair.

The Halloween decorations may have come down, but we will always have this awesome video of Clare greeting the trick or treaters at the door. The wave goodbye at the end never gets old.

This is from a couple of past Halloween’s. What do you do with a halo?  Make a crown out of it of course, she is our princess.  Anna and Cooper have always liked pushing Clare trick or treating even though Clare can’t eat any of the candy. Hanging out and laughing at the kids is her treat.

Who doesn’t love a warm bath? 
One of the hardest tasks in our home is to get Clare in the tub. Clare is nearing 80 pounds and lifting her over the edge of the tub and then lowering her down to the bottom is very challenging. We don’t have a lift to help. Clare loves her baths, so we try to let her have them as often as possible, but it’s getting more difficult every day. Since we can’t post a picture of Clare in the tub, this is how we have to wash her hair at the hospital, a shower cap full of shampoo.

Clare’s back kept on failing so eventually after 2 more unsuccessful tries we decided to place Clare in Halo Traction. This meant attaching a halo to her skull by 8 bolts and then adding weight slowly everyday for 4 months until she had half her body weight hanging from her head. 
This would hopefully help straighten her spine enough before attaching the rods again so the pressure would no longer pull the hooks through the transverse bones. 
Over the next couple of days we will tell you more about this experience.

Back to the story of Clare’s back. 
It only took a couple of months for the bad news to hit about Clare’s back. The top part of  the rods pulled through her transverse process bones, which are the bones on the side of your spine. We knew there would be problems but had been optimistic that they would not fail that quickly. She required surgery to connect the rods again. The picture is the opening of the second surgery.
