Doing It!

KK is impressing everyone!
KK is up and out of bed!  She is sitting in a chair feeding herself as I type.

She was pretty emotional before getting up.  She cried, "I am doing it! I am doing it!" once she was up.

She did PT from the chair this morning as well. She is still weak on her right side and needs support standing.  They will be doing PT twice a day now to help her get her strength back.

Cardiology came in this morning and listened to KK's heart.  They have been monitoring her since Wednesday and think she is doing really well.  Her heart rate is still higher than normal, but they aren't concerned about that.  There were a couple PVCs (Premature Ventricular Contractions) Wednesday night and Thursday night, but they are few and far between, so they are weaning her off the Lidocaine.  Please pray for her heart to beat steady and strong.

She begins the anti-viral meds today.  Please pray that they will start doing their job quickly and for minimal side-effects.

Adoption Day is a big deal. What a blessing.

But still miraculously my own"
You two are a beautiful team. I'm praying for more miracles for God's glory.
