New Digs

A big day for the King family! Grammie reports: 
My sweet peanut got moved and settled in her new digs! Carrie says she is relaxed and is doing well. There as always a new set of challenges to work on. They are in a nice big room with windows but unfortunately the room is very oddly divided. Julia has 1/3 of the room by the door and can't see the window and Carrie is trying to figure out how to make the one chair work as her bed. As of our last chat it is only able to fit under the sink used by the staff. The staff keeps apologizing for the situation but Julia must be close to the nursing station as she is the most serious patient on the floor. We think overall it will probably work out and Julia will make great strides. She started smiling as soon as she heard her mommy's voice this morning. A wonderful thing! I hope she will be as happy to see me as I will be to see her tomorrow!
Hope you all had a wonderful day and are having a snug lovely evening tonight.
We love you

A later night update from speaking to Carrie: Julia has been sleeping very peacefully since she has been in her new room. The overall environment is so much calmer and quieter, and should be more conducive to healing.  Julia will need her rest, because she will be working hard with all of the therapy scheduled for her. They met many people on her team today, and she gets started with therapy tomorrow. She will have Physical, Occupational and Speech therapies, and it sounds like she will often have both morning and afternoon sessions of each. It will be intense, and very exciting as she continues to make progress!
Wishing everyone a wonderful night,


  1. Such wonderful progress! Thank you for the updates... Deborah

  2. Thanks so much for the updates. They mean so much to all of us.

  3. I wanted to share that I had a dream two nights ago that Julia was smiling as she interacted with family and was excitedly walking around the room of a hospital as she was getting ready to go home. I will continue to hold this vision and use it as a focus for my positive intentions for her, and all of you. Thanks for staying in communication; it's really great.
