Elaine had a great day. She slept well although she is definitely tired
of being woken up at 5:00am for her daily blood draw. Her right arm is
very battered as well since they aren't able to draw blood from little
Elaine had a fun afternoon with her friends Pat, Marty, and Rockee. They
made her laugh, filled her in on the scoop back in the desert and
brought her delicious treats. They enjoyed some time outside in the sun
and they marveled at the progress she has made since their last visit.
The weekend speech therapist was blown away by the progress. We are
working hard on getting her to talk louder. We are even threatening to
ignore her soft voice! Her vocal cords have been strained and after
three weeks in a hospital, who can blame her. They seem to work REALLY
well when anyone asks her release date though:)
Here is a very special message from Elaine!
All our love,
Fred, Ben and Staci
