One step at a time...

So, today was filled with hope.  We started and stayed well throughout the day.  I knew it would be a good one when Sophie told me she was bored this morning.  After seeing all of the doctors and nurses and therapists and such, Sophie took a stroll down the hall to the ChildLife playroom.  There she made gak with Georgetown chemistry students, made a volcano erupt, and played with home-made quicksand - all before creating two awesome, glittered paintings.  She returned to the room a few hours later tuckered out to say the least.  After a bit of rest she geared me an a volunteer up to string beads and make some jewelry.  Idle hands you know.

As you can imagine, we're thrilled to report that her progress is positive and that she continues to get better by the hour.  We're hopeful that she can deliver the essential bodily functions tomorrow so she can have the NG tube removed and start putting at least liquids past her lips again. I'll post more pics tomorrow.  Thanks for checking in and staying tuned with us,and of course your continued prayers and support! PEACE.
