A step closer to going home.

Today has been great so far, we are feeling much better than expected. Dawn is awake and talking, the nurses came in and took off all her attachments. Leg pumps, ekg leads, oxygen mask, and cathater. The only thing left hooked to her is the IV which is needed for the "good stuff". So that puts her one step closer to going home, so says nurse Alice. The reason being is she can be more mobil and start getting up to go to the bathroom. The doctors want her to "excersise" her Balance nerve in a since by moving around as much as she feels comfortable with, without over doing it of course. They said her brain needes that stimulation of moving to get used to having only one signal coming from her right side. ( They severed the left balance nerve, did I mention that yesterday...dont worry that was planned.) Other than that the only other thing going on is trying to figure out what pain meds work best for her to go home with. More to come.


  1. I hope it isn't too long before you are headed home. Just wondering if you've been able to see the kids?

  2. I have personally felt so loved by God to have done such miracles in your brain. Did you ask the doctor to put more "smarts" in there while he was in there? lol Love ya and I am so praying for your journey at home. blessings to you and thanks to your honey for keeping us updated. The children saw the pic of you and David said,"She gave us overalls!" what a memory he has!
