Not much to report this morning. We’re expecting a visit from the neurosurgeon this afternoon, so perhaps there will be an update then. This morning they’re noticing a bit more symmetry in her involuntary movements – she’d previously been moving around a lot more with her right arm and leg, but now we’re seeing her left side moving almost as much as her right side.
Since the right side of her brain is the side with the air around her brain and all the swelling in her face, it makes sense that her left side wouldn’t be moving around as much (since the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body). So the fact that she’s got more equal movement is encouraging. The occupational therapist is also noticing some good improvement in her range of motion all over her body. They drew some more blood to test (they’re not looking for anything in particular, just making sure they haven’t missed anything), so perhaps we’ll hear results this afternoon on that as well.
Thanks so much to everyone for your support, thoughts, and prayers. We so much appreciate reading your comments here on this blog!
