Layne had a fairly good night. She experienced some nausea. A group of doctors came by this morning, and they were in disbelief of how well she is doing. The respiratory therapist was so pleased at how well she is doing, he decided to remove her respirator. She's breathing completely on her own. We are waiting to see how she responds. Hopefully, she will be able to talk soon. Keep praying- it is working!
Layne had a very good day today. The neurologist saw her this morning and said that she does have some deficits with her peripheral vision, but it will improve as her eye muscles get stronger. Layne went through two rounds of physical therapy today and they said her legs are very strong.
Her left arm, hand, and fingers are stronger than the right side. However, the right side has improved since her last PT session. She was alert today, and in good spirits. The nurses said that she doesn't want her eyes covered during dressing changes. She wants to look at herself. She doesn't cry or get upset.
This kid is both physically and emotionally strong. We have been told that her infections are clear, and we are hoping it stays that way- so we ask for that to be a specific prayer request. Her next surgery will be Wednesday.
Please keep the prayers coming for this remarkable girl!

Layne had a terrific morning. She was alert and active when we arrived at the hospital. We got to hear her voice loud and clear. She tried something new during her physical therapy session. Her therapist put her on a tilt table to help relieve pressure on her back and help with digestion. She was almost fully standing. They had her move her arms up and down. Her therapist and nurse were dancing with her. Now, she's wiped out. She's heading for surgery at 11. Because of surgery, we repeat the ventilator process again; she'll be placed back on it for surgery and taken back off again when she gets stronger.

Layne had a restful night. She is more alert today. She had physical therapy on her hands this morning, and she will be placed on the tilt table later this afternoon -so that she will be upright. They will work on stretching her arms, legs, and shoulders. She hasn't been complaining of pain. She is slowly being weaned off of pain medication. Obviously, they are still providing her with enough so that she is comfortable and will continue to do so. Currently, they are changing out her central line again. She is still feeling a bit down, but she is asking to watch movies -so that's a good sign. I'm trying to arrange for her to begin receiving some counseling to help her with her emotions. Since I'm not able to be in the room (to provide her with up close touch support) I'm doing my best to provide outside help.
Thank you for your continued prayers for strength and healing.
