Everyone said to expect something to happen today, and to be honest there was a part of me that was scared somehow we'd be the exception. She got her EVD drain out a few hours ago and immediately afterward a nurse helped me wash her hair and give her a sponge bath. At that point she seemed so much more comfortable and content...still a bit grumpy but much less so than before. Then...the words started coming...some I hadn't heard in days, others I hadn't heard since before surgery..."mommy, "want a cracker", "no", "puppy"...and that's just in ten minutes! I think Michael and I were about to cry with happiness, because we've missed her so much. Even though she's been physically with us it's like we haven't seen her since early Tuesday.
Just had to share the news!
