One Week

Today marks the second Monday that we are here. I was sure we would be back home by now. But having a plan in place is nice. Naomi enjoyed having Lauryn here for the past two days. They read together, did crafts, giggled, and fought. It was nice to see her act like a normal child. Today we went to the playroom and helped make Halloween decorations. Naomi was very ambitious with her walk and pushed herself farther than on previous days. I was very proud of her but it wiped her out and she napped for a few hours after.

She is able to move much more easily without saying “owie” with every breath. She sat up like it was nothing and was definitely moving her legs better while in bed. Previous days had been spent in a manikan like position because she was afraid to move lest it hurt more. She did not even give me a hard time about getting into the rocking chair today.

I got to go home for a few hours this evening while Mary stayed with Naomi. They had a good time together and I got to fold and put away laundry and clean my bedroom. Win/win! I am hoping we get downgraded from intermediary medical care tomorrow. I am also hoping that since we are going to be here for a while that they might move us to another area of the hospital and not keep us right beside the nurses’ station. It would be nice to have a little less traffic and noise right outside the door for the next few weeks.

Malakye is Naomi’s guest of honor tonight. They have some sort of sibling whistling call that allows them to communicate with each other without the rest of us knowing what they are talking about. As they fell asleep tonight, they were exchanges messages.  Bringing the other kids in here is definitely helping her heal. Her morale has improved and she is not showing the anger she had been or being as difficult with us throughout the day.

    It sounds like some progress is being made. I am happy to see Naomi doing some things with either Lauryn or Malakye. I’m sure that beats laying in bed all day. I’m glad she is improving a little each day.Giving peace of mind to everyone who loves her. Send her my Blessings and Prayers that she continues on her path.
    Lots of Love from Uncle Ross
