Woohoo!

it was her second run
boots
mittens
knit hat
small red sled
she was ready
to fly

the night was dark
not a star
she looked for the moon
the hill was compact
bumpy

she hopped on the sled
it almost left without her
woosh
speed
breathing life
grinning

all too soon she was off the sled
it kept going
so did she
landing hard and the wind was gone
all she wanted was breath
all she wanted was home

almost two weeks later
she still sleeps in a chair
everyday stronger
but they were right
it got worse
before it got better

I hope she is totally restored soon.
