Julia Update Part Two
Grammie's update gives a good sense of Julia's long day, but I just wanted to add my joy at seeing the progress Julia has made since I saw her last a few days ago. She is so much more alert, and those beautiful eyes were open and aware in a totally different way. She was wiggling her toes and moving her legs, too. She really wanted to be asleep, but unfortunately the arterial line they worked so hard to get in place earlier was acting up again, so the nurse was trying every trick in the book to get it working again. I think it was eventually resolved, so hopefully everyone will get some rest tonight. And you, too--I hope all of Julia's family, friends and fans sleep well tonight. Know that all of the support you are providing, the love and prayers sent, gifts, financial help, songs, chants, food delivered, special books and pictures, and more, all of that generous outpouring of love continues to help Julia and her family immeasurably.
Julia and Oliver at storytime. Oliver was watching the book, Julia watching Oliver. Check out that smile!
