Today was a great day, Wennie had physical therapy in the morning and she has started to put more weight on her left foot. Her left foot is also her weak foot so we are trying to be as careful as possible as she begins to walk. Wennie's voice and appetite has increased as well and she has started eating desserts. She still has the feeding tube because water is still too thin to drink but on Monday if she passes this last swallow test she will be able to drink clear liquids again. The doctors are quite impressed with her progress, so impressed that they will move her to rehab next week where she can practice more walking. Below are two videos from this morning's physical therapy session. In addition to her progress, she has also started to check her emails and blog and has seen all the kind words of support sent by many of you. I know this has contributed to her miraculous recovery and we are all truly touched by the kindness of friends and strangers. As we continue to take it one day at a time, we thank you for your love and support!
