I was unsure what to say the last couple of days. She remains the same since Friday's seizure. She hasn't said too many words. When she does say something, it is barely audible. She occasionally will smile. She certainly gives puckering lips to smooch. She is shaking, sweating, and breathing heavily. She has been on oxygen since Friday. They took it off today while she was sitting in a chair. She seems to understand what I'm talking about, just won't answer questions. She will nod and get big eyes in response to some things. Medications are being adjusted constantly to maintain status quo. All the teams will be back for rounds tomorrow. She will be getting CT of lungs and MRI of brain to keep an eye on both infections this week. Other than that, who knows. Please pray that every day we get some good news toward her healing.
Stephanie Cullison Stein, a lifelong friend of Kelsey's, came today. I think that as the week passes Steph will be able to help with physical therapy and massage. I also think she will be able to stimulate her brain. I pray that God uses her in a mighty way.
It has been a stable weekend, so Praise God. Tyler celebrated his 21st birthday today. He was able to see Josh McDowell on campus today. I told him that his dad and I saw him when we were in college too. I wonder if that made him feel old. It didn't faze me:)
Thanks to all who made his day special.
The Gingerbread Houses are displayed for the next couple of weeks. Different floors make elaborate houses with a variety of themes. We vote for our favorite. I took pictures of my three favorites for Kelsey to vote on. I will show them to her everyday and make a tally as to her favorite. There were carolers by the display yesterday when I took Kelsey down there in her wheelchair. It is festive here. I love that.
I'm a bit numb, maybe tired so am not really feeling too many emotions right now. Maybe because the weekend was fairly quiet. Please pray for a highly encouraging week full of grace and mercy AND HEALING POWER!
