Grammie Update

Angels dear you are amazing and oh so special! My girl had a good day! She was very unhappy when they came to work with her for pt and the therapist said that she thought Julia needed to be held by her mommy. Julia smiled very big and was very happy to be held! I think she is trying to make up for lost time! She stayed cuddled with Mommy until Daddy took over cuddle duty which also made her very happy! Daddy has been working on having her make movements that mean yes and no so she has more control over what is happening.

They have put her back on the ventilator and have it set so she gets a breath ever 12 seconds. They say that having her oxygen drop as much as it was was not letting her brain heal. So it is going to be a little bit slower process. Once she starts swallowing and breathing all the time she will make even more leaps and bounds! I know you all will help to get those two things under control! Overall is is truly amazing and 
making great progress. We and the docs are very impressed with her even with the few wrinkles!
Amanda, Mommy and I went to the library and Amanda Oliver and Finn made gingerbread houses! It was great! We then had a wonderful dinner provided by one of Carrie's angel friends! How special - we capped the evening off with advent candle lighting and story read!

A truly lovely time!
A wish for healing sleep to all!
Love hugs and blessings
