Christie is doing well today. Rod was in with her for 3 1/2 hours today talking with her. She, of course, was really excited to see him. She makes letters in the air to communicate. She is very alert and wants to talk so communicating like this is very frustrating for her at times. There is a 90% chance that she will get the breathing tube taken out today and then she will be able to talk to her family.
She, of course, is worried about her injuries and how she will look but the nurse came in today and reassured her that it is alot better then they expected and she probably will heal quite well. This seemed to help her to hear this. She is enjoying that her family is there and even though she can't talk to them that well, she loves to hear them talk and tell her about how everyone is pulling for her and all of your well wishes.
Doctors and nurses are still amazed at how well she is doing!!!
