Out of ICU

Mei-Ling is now out of ICU and in a room on the surgical floor.  She even sat up for a bit today.  When I arrived to see her this late morning, she was eating some pizza !  The strength of this child is beyond remarkable.   Even when they were doing something that caused pain, she didn't cry, but only said, "ouchie, ouchie, ouchie"   I brought her gnome pal Gorman along with me.  He is the little gnome doll I made a couple years ago, that is responsible for magic around here.  He leaves notes, he bakes cookies at night and all sorts of amazing things.  Today I finished the sweater for Turte, his new little friend.  I made her mittens and hat while Mei was in surgery.  Good way to pass the time.   Tomorrow she will have new pants and some "fur" boots.  I pray that tomorrow be a better day for out little angel, and that the pain is less and less.  They hope to have her up walking a bit tomorrow, so it will be a big day for her.  CT scan was great today, the Doctors were all well pleased.    Thank you again for all your prayers and healing thoughts.

I live in Maryland and I am just a random blog reader but I too have been praying for your sweet granddaughter. I thought about her a lot on Monday. Glad to hear she is doing so well and hope everyday brings more improvement. The power of prayer!!

I will keep praying. All children are gifts from God, but Mei-Ling is a very, very special gift.
