Exhausted...

It has been another great day of progress. But I am exhausted!!! Emotionally, physically, mentally.

Sophie had PT and OT. She sat up so well for OT. PT worked hard on her standing skills. I keep telling myself to be patient. She is doing great. EVERYONE keeps telling us how well she is doing...the doctors, the therapist, other parents who have gone through this.
Her cognitive skills are amazing. She is talking up a storm. Okay...not quite a storm but for her...a storm. She is even saying NEW words. I am so proud of her. Things are clicking up there. Her brain is reorganizing.

The most important thing is that WE DID NOT SEE ANY SEIZURES TODAY!!!

It sounds like the news just keeps getting better. Seizure free and new words....it really sounds like a great success. What a treat that you had the surgery unexpectedly moved up so that you get to see all these things so much sooner!

Continuing to pray for Sophie's complete healing.
