Anne has had an especially good few days. She’s sitting and standing better. She’s also got more fluidity in her walking movements.
I think the largest improvement has been in her fussiness. Over the weekend, Eric thought she might be constipated, and boy was he right! The cork came out on Monday and now we’ve settled into a rhythm… Each afternoon, she gets fussy; we give her a supository; she has a bowel movement, and voila – she’s calm and quiet the rest of the evening. It’s amazing actually!
Originally, today was supposed to be her discharge date. I’m thankful she has one more week… She’s improved so much just in the last week. I think I’m ready to bring her home.
Our prayer requests from Tuesday are still relevant today…
- that Anne would gain more control over her thoughts so that she is better able to focus in therapy and communicate her needs,
- that Anne would continue to make strides in her sitting and walking. She’s doing much better in these areas…
- Currently, Anne puts EVERYTHING in her mouth. Pray that she will be able to inhibit this impulse and gain appropriate function of her right and left hands.
- That she would be especially aware of God’s presence and peace as she struggles through her recovery.
