Up and drinking...
It's about 11am. Sophie woke up about 15 minutes ago and sat up. She was alert and talking. Repeating the words we asked her to. Then she chugged a cup of apple juice. Brandon got here about 45 minutes ago, so he was able to see all of this. It was heartwarming to see her awake and not in pain. Just a little disoriented. She is already sleeping again.
Her face looks incredible. Very minimal swelling. Sophie will be transferred to the 5th floor for monitoring as soon as the room is available. Once she is transferred, Dr. Asano will perform the motor mapping.
Thanks for checking in on us. The first thing Brandon did once he checked in on Sophie this morning was read all the comments from his post. Thank you all for being so incredibly supportive! I will be posting pictures this afternoon once I get my laptop back (I left it at the RMH).
By the way, we are staying here:

*Not sure what room we will be in yet.
