These (almost) two weeks at home have done wonders for Talitha. She is able to sit up by herself again and is moving her left leg more and more. Her left arm and hand are regaining their coordination a little more each day. A speech therapist came to our home yesterday to evaluate Talitha's progress and was pleasantly surprised that she is communicating so well only three weeks after her brain surgery.
Talitha is smiling, talking, laughing, playing, and in good spirits.
We feel more rested and are ready to face this next step with faith. There is no doubt that God lives and loves His children. The strength we have felt in answer to the prayers of so many is breathtaking. "Thank you" just doesn't seem to be adequate.
We check Talitha in to the Primary Children's Medical Center (PCMC) tomorrow at 10am. Her expected stay is 3 days. As this next phase of her journey begins, we are most hopeful that she be kept safe from infection as her white blood cells take such a hit from the chemotherapy.
Thank you for praying for her. The prayers of so many faithful, loving, family, friends, neighbors and others is overwhelmingly awesome to experience.
We love you!
Audrey and William
