After Christmas, Adam had us all over to eat with Millie. It was a nice time together and I decided I would share pictures from the dinner with you all. Thanks for praying for Millie.
It was a year on December 27th since Millie has been hospitalized. She has been opening her eyes a lot and staying awake for long periods of time. I've never heard her say anything more than making groaning/moaning types sounds at different times.
I got to the hospital a bit earlier than others and so got to visit with Mil in her room. I like to take a warm washcloth and swish it in scented bath gels to wipe off her arms, hands, neck and face then I put on lotion. It gives us some time to interact with each other and mostly gives me time to check out how she is reacting.
I finished cleaning her up a bit and then started looking around her side of the room. She has a small, lighted Christmas tree that was so cute. And several new cuddly bears. I picked up the bears and then turned around and said to Mil, "Look Mil, who gave this bear to you?" She opened her eyes and looked. Then I put it away and picked up another, "Look, who gave this to you?" She glanced over at the second bear. She did this again for the third. She also looked at my niece when I said, "Look Mil, it's Becca's girl - Britt." So looking is her newest accomplishment and one that I really enjoyed observing on our last visit. Hope you enjoy the pictures. I had a hard time getting slide.com to work this time! I think it was my connection.
Happy birthday today to Calli (my son Klint's wife). We all love you so much. You have made yourself a super, sweet addition to our family I love you and I thank God for you.
