Saddest Sad Face
Just a quick update, Georgia did really well in therapy today, she is starting to warm up to the therapists now, thank you, Jesus. I cannot tell you how good that is because it makes me feel like not such a bad guy anymore. During our afternoon speech session Georgia was looking in the mirror at herself and she kissed her reflection, we all clapped and cheered her on, this proved to be too much for her and she made the saddest sad face EVER! It was cute though, she pouted her bottom lip and everything, I can not tell you the last time I saw her make this face. Even though it was sad it makes me happy to see my little Love Bug showing more emotion. Then in the garden after therapy ended for the day I was praying and she looked at me and put her arm up and I said what is wrong and you know what she did?!!! She hugged me, really hugged me. That has never happened, usually I am the one who wraps her arms around my neck, God gave me a special gift through Georgia today. After supper tonight we took some books out to the garden, we read and did some stretching, we worked with more kneeling and reaching across the right side of her body. She even thought it was a game when I took her bink away for her to grab. I'm so proud of her. We got a discharge date, June 15, nothing is set in stone of course but it would be so fabulous to go home on this day. I'm scared but excited at the same time to see how much she will progress in her own environment. We gave her some melatonin tonight to help her rest and she is resting peacefully now, if only this place were a lot more quiet maybe I could rest. I have a prayer request, tonight a friend is finishing the second part of her son's hemispherectomy. I know they have a long road ahead of them, her baby, Sutton, is only 7 months old so I'm not sure if he will have to go to inpatient rehab or not but please pray for their family.
