Progress

At this point in time we are thankful for any progress, even if it seems like tiny baby steps.
There have been no seizures in the past 24 hours.  Mei-Lings blood work was all normal today.  She was a bit confused and a bit delusional but they are thinking perhaps it was from all the medications she has been on and a serious lack of sleep in the past 24 hours.   Late this afternoon she slept for over an hour, after being anointed by Fr Duncan from the church we attend.  That was proof that prayer works as she had not be able to sleep !  She woke and asked for a hamburger and french fries !  Her confusion seemed to lessen after her nap.  They are still monitoring her very closely and she has a slew of Doctors seeing her.   She is so weak that even holding her head up for more than a few seconds is just not possible.  No more feeding tube or breathing tube.   What a miracle her progress has been !  Thank you all for the prayers and good thoughts, and we still need them for her and for her parents.  They are worn out, but you would never know it by the way they tirelessly care for Mei around the clock.

I'm so glad to hear that she is improving. I will continue to pray for a complete recovery.
I am wondering why her head is wrapped in bandages. That little girl has been through so much. What a little trooper.

Oh Patty, I didn't know this had happened to Mei-Ling. I'm so glad to hear she is showing signs of recovery. I pray your sweet girl is herself very soon. I pray she has complete healing and you and your family have peace. Prayers can heal; I know it.
Take good care, Teri

Poor baby! My thoughts have been going out to her and I've been sending so much light and positivity her way.

No child should have to endure as much as she has. My only hope is that she gets through this and totally recovers. Never having to go through anything like this ever again but as a result, grows into the strong, sweet young lady, that you very special people are rasing her to be.

Mei Ling has such potential to shine so brightly in this world! I wish nothing but the best for her...and for all of you.

May you all take care, and get the much needed rest and peace that you all deserve.
