Omi Update & Visit

Last weekend I went to St. Petersburg to spend some time with Omi. She's doing a lot better - but has a long way to go. Omi's been moved to a long-term care facility (also know as a nursing home) and it is much nicer there than in the CCU at the hospital. She has her own room and it is much quieter. Omi is still on the ventilator, so can't talk, and her hands are still very weak, so no writing. But she can mouth words and use her word chart to point out letters. Although that's harder to understand than it seems like it would be! But it was really nice just to be with her. Yesterday she was off the ventilator for 7 hours and made her first trip to the gym. One of her exercises was walking with the parallel bars in the gym.

Omi didn't want any pictures taken of her, but I was able to get a few of my mom and brother. I hope to get those up soon.


Thank you for all the love and prayers ya'll keep sending our way. They really make a difference!
