Talitha is out of Pediatric ICU. (Happy Day) She has been moved to the Neurological Trauma Care unit on the same floor in room 2016. Her shunt has been clamped off and they will continue to watch her closely. After 24 to 48 hours they will do another scan. If the ventricles in her head are not enlarged and it appears that she is properly draining the fluid from her head then she will have the shunt removed from her head. Today more of her vocabulary has returned and she is not only smiling but occasionally giggling. It is wonderful to see the positive signs and William and Audrey are extremely grateful for everyone’s prayers and support. It is a wonderful way to start the new year. There are still a lot of hurdles ahead but the progress is really boosting William and Audreys spirits.
Tonight Audrey will take all of the rest of the kids home and we will drop off Afton and Madeline when they arrive home.
Please continue to pray for Talitha that her recovery may continue to go well.
