Stronger

This is KK's theme song for this journey...especially for the last two days.


Yesterday and today were hard.  Hard for me to see my baby girl struggle to form words.  Hard to see her not wake up when all the doctors loudly called her name asking her to open her eyes. I'm sure it was hard for KK to try to do everything that was asked of her and not be able to do it.

KK only had a few moments where she was lucid enough to communicate and do what we asked her to do.  Those moments were so short and so far apart.  During those lucid times, she fought with all the strength she had to do all that was asked of her.

This afternoon, she woke up during the MRI and stayed awake for three more hours.  When she got settled back in the room, she cried, "I thought I was going to be able to go home."  We cried together and I reassured her that she was right where she needed to be and would go home as soon as she was well.  Her speech was still slow and labored, but she was much clearer.  She was also using her right hand more and did a few other things that we asked her to do (kick, give five, etc.).

Praise the Lord -- she is getting STRONGER!

What a strong young woman! My little Gabriel was about to nod off to bed as he has some fever/spots combination that's got him pretty tired. I decided not to prompt him to pray tonight because of hoe tired he was, but he said "Mama, we need to pray for KK." May you both have strength for each day!
