Yesterday was a super busy day for Miss Thing. They clamped off her lumbar drain & began the processing of sitting her up. By lunch time, she was doing great & up far enough to have the tray in front of her. What a treat to not eat lying down!
As you can imagine, she was pretty tired & a bit ouchie from this hard work, so she had some tylenol & a good nap. After some more sitting up, we did a sponge bath, got on some new jammies, & tried out the legs. When we first stood her up, she was a little wobbly so we just let her lean on me for a few minutes. Then we asked her to take a couple steps, & she looked good! By now, we were by the door in her room to the hallway. When we opened the door, she took my hand & we were off!! She walked the whole length of the hallway & was having the time of her life. I think I would have cried except that I was smiling too much.
Her neurosurgeon was here first thing this morning & very pleased with her accomplishments. They will be removing the lumbar drain & her IV soon & then WE GET TO GO HOME!!!! Praising God for the wonderful people He has put in our path this week to help our little girl & for the determination He's given her to overcome.
