Vibes and prayers for my sister - Page 2

Baby steps, as long as they are in the right direction, are nothing to scoff at in situations like this. Sitting in a chair to eat breakfast, even if that's all she had in her at the time, sounds pretty darned fine. Keeping up the

Sounds like she is doing as well as can be expected.

The physical therapist had her stand and take a couple steps today. She took the steps, but sat right back down in the bed. The therapist said it was a good start and they'll start working with her regularly.

Holly did ask me to get her laptop from home; she's got a lot of friends on secondlife she wants to communicate with. They did another CT scan this morning and it was good. She still sleeps a lot, which I've been told is normal.

It looks like she may be in for a long hospital/rehabilitation stay. But, if she can resume her normal life, it will be worth it.

The neurologist in charge of Holly's care stopped by tonight and said she will probably be moved out of ICU in a couple of days to a regular room. Once there, they will start physical therapy and if (a big if), she can prove she can take care of herself and do okay alone, she will get to come him this weekend.

The flip side is she may require more intensive PT away from the hospital, but all in all, we are definitely heading in the right direction.

Bless you all for your vibes and prayers.

Holly was moved to a regular room two days ago and will be going to a rehab center nearby which is one of the best around (our father went there after his first stroke). She's having problems with her short term memory and I just pray she can resume her normal life.
Thanks again for all the vibes; things could have turned out much worse than they are!
