Turned a Corner

Kate has appeared to have turned a corner this afternoon. Her personality is slowly beginning to come through...and tonight after her dinner, she was playing with her toys for the 1st time! She ate a great dinner...loving her apple you can see from the picture...I couldn't get it to her quick enough!!
We were treated to a return visit from Dr. Parikh on his way back to Indy this afternoon. He said he just had to stop and see how her afternoon went and if she stayed off the IV...which she has!!! We also got a visit from our Children's Pastor, Trey, from church and he blessed Kate and I with a wonderful prayer. I also forgot to mention my visit from my wonderful friend, Melanee last night....she is always great support and takes time from her busy family to encourage me!! THANKS MEL!

It's been a pretty uneventful afternoon/evening..but that is good! We did see our paper girl (12-13 year old) in here for some breathing problems...lift her up will you...she is it the sweetest little girl and comes from a great (big) family!

Andy is getting ready to head back home for the night and Kate and I will enjoy some milk(actually, I hope she is the only one to enjoy it) and then hopefully both of us will hit the sack for a few hours! At this rate....(knock on wood) we should be home by the end of the weekend!
And...maybe tomorrow...we'll see the smile again and I'll be sure to get those posted ASAP! Love to all!

So glad things are going well for you all and that Dr. Parikh was pleased with how our girl looks. I'm glad she is getting fiesty with you again and demanding what she wants when she wants it! Take care and we will continue to keep you in our prayers!

Praise God for the improvement in Kate! So glad that you didn't have to leave town this time. We're in the Chicago area visiting Laura and her family for the weekend. Hopefully you will be back home by the first of the week.
Sending love and prayers,
