Emily finally woke at 5am this morning. How wonderful to see her beautiful big brown eyes and have her see and hear me talk to her. She was pretty restless and really groggy. She couldn’t talk, but shook her head yes or no to several questions I asked. She wanted me to crawl in bed with her. She kept clearing her throat. The first thing she said using sign language was that she wanted to eat… and drink something. I am so glad we learned a little sign language for her to communicate when she was a baby. We didn’t try to eat, but she did drink an entire sippy cup of ice water. She swallowed without difficulty. She was up until a little after 7am dosing on and off. She is breathing comfortably without oxygen. She is now sleeping peacefully. Thank you to everyone for all of your prayers.
