Getting down to business

This morning they brought Gracie breakfast of scrambled eggs and pancakes. Everything is pureed, almost like baby food, but it tastes like normal food. It makes her have more of a desire to eat. She has been talking A LOT more. This afternoon I was singing the B-I-B-L-E to her (again, it's her favorite!) and when we got to the part where you yell Bible she was silent. So I asked her what the B-I-B-L-E spells and she still didn't answer. I was a little disappointed, then she said "Mommy, Jesus." I asked her what about Jesus and she said "Jesus in mommy heart". My little girl might be having a hard time expressing herself, but she KNOWS. She knows. She's in there and she knows. Good is just not the word for what God has been to us. Wonderful, Excellent, Marvelous, Incredible, Magnificent!! Merciful, Loving, Kind, True... I could go on for days.

The ophthalmologists were in a little while ago. Her eyes look perfect, so we are playing the wait and see game. The stroke definitely affected her vision, but as her brain heals, her sight might heal as well. She definitely does react to light, which is a good sign.

She also had physical therapy today, and the therapist decided to try and stand her up. She did well. She is in NO way ready to stand on her own (she can't even hold her head up for very long), but she's trying. She also did the arm movements for Rolled Away for her ( as well as she can when the good arm has an IV board and the other doesn't move well). I could tell she was impressed...

The Nursing Assistant was just in a minute ago to do her vitals. Gracie counted to 10 with her!!
