The morning after

Julia did well overnight...we didn't get a phone call and I was at her bedside by 5:30am. The nurse said she had a good night and slept for the most part. She is still weak on her right side, able to use her right arm and hand. Her right leg is not moving much yet but this will improve with time. Dr. Sood came by this morning and said she looked good. She will be moved to a regular room sometime later today once a bed is available. She woke up for a little while this morning and was saying "Mommy" but not much more...she's getting regular pain meds so isn't awake much for now. All of this is to be expected as she heals.

For now things look good!

Whisper "gunk-gunk" in her ear and "itsy-bitsy spider"...she loves those and tell her that her friends at CCDS miss her dearly. Take care and we are happy she is on the road to recovery.

I can't even articulate how much I appreciate your willingness to share so openly this journey...especially as our "day" draws nearer every moment.

Praying for quick happy healing!
