Great News! Today Jessie's head was turned to midline. (face-up). The tape was removed, and I feel sure that she is more comfortable now. She has said some more words today, but remains heavily sedated. I can't imagine what kind of things are going on in her brain right now, but I'm sure it is trying to figure out what to do.
I imagine a line of ants, and their path blocked by a stick. It takes a while for them to get back on track again with their duties, but they eventually figure it all out again and do it. Only with Jessie, it is with electrical brain synapse firing and connection.
We saw some more movement in her left fingers and toes...but very minor. The Neurologist on call today reaffirmed that ANY movement is more than they expect. So this is exciting.
The most exciting news today was running into the nice family from Mexico City today. They told us that a liver donor was found today and they were so excited. The transplant surgery is tonight. Yesterday, they were so distraught and hopeless. Time was running out. Now, they have hope again. They were so optimistic. Smiling and dreaming for a future that they thought was lost. It was so cool !!!
I'll try to update later tonight. -Cris
