I didn't go to the hospital today because I worked 12 hours. When I got home, I called my mom's cell phone and she let Leslie talk to me on the phone. For the first few moments, it sounded like our regular old phone conversations, and it was so nice.

No big updates again today otherwise. My parents said she is very chatty and happy today, so that's always nice. I heard she had physical therapy today, but that might have been confused with speech therapy, because last I had heard (Saturday) they weren't ready to do much with her for fear of causing strain on her heart. Then again, she just may have had physical therapy, because we also learned Saturday that she would have to improve neurologically before she could have any heart procedures, and she is "penciled in" to have a cardiac cath tomorrow. Prayers that this goes okay. Part of me is really happy, because I am ready to get things moving so we can start moving her around more and maybe get her into rehab, but the other part of me is really scared, because she seems so fragile right now.

All in all, I think my family had a really good day today. Everyone seems optimistic, and that is always a good thing.

It was physical therapy. Just kind of an evaluation. I think she did very well. Speech didn't show up.

Hi Laura,
Thanks for taking the time to post the updates. I have been following since your Aunt Bev told me what had happened. I'm so sorry for all of you to have to go through this especially Leslie. Stay strong and stick together as a family. My prayers are with all of you. CB
