Hurry Up And Wait
Waiting is the word. Ainsley has been doing well the past couple of days. She has slowly been improving on her blood gas tests, she's making slow steps towards reducing her oxygen needs, and her movement has come back nicely. The physical therapist was even stimulating her enough yesterday to try and get her to open her eyes. She isn't quite there yet, but did give the PT some good reflexes and responses to firm touch. Yesterday was a good one for small steps of progress and because Ginnie was able to hold Ainsley for about 2 hours! I think this helps both Ginnie and Ainsley, and is some of the best healing one can get. So, we're all just hanging in there with tons of hope, watching in awe at Ainsley's improvements, and hoping she decides to show us something new each day! Thanks again for all the love an support being sent our way! We really appreciate it and keep it coming! Ainsley has a ways yet to go, but she is on her way there!
