    Morgan had another wonderful day.....she was showing me just how smart she is...she got upset and cried twice..I showed her an old school picture, and she remembered her friend, but she couldn't speak...and the second time she cried, was because she wanted to speak to grandma, and couldn't talk...but she did make the phone sign with her fingers, which I didn't even know she knew lol
    DH shaved his head, because she is upset about hers, and he walked into the room...and she pointed to her head, then to his,...she knew immediatly he shaved...and this morning, she took a makeup brush, and dipped it in make up and put it on his face...( we call him papa bear )
    she also SMILED!!! It was the most amazing thing in the world to see...one side is paralized, and the other side feels numb from swelling, but she didn't let that hold her back!...we learned more hand signs..and she remembers older things, she is able to point out who is who in pictures...and we even discussed buying a new dress for her..and she was able to stop me to indicate what color she wanted, then showed me her nails ( which we painted ) to tell me she wanted the dress the same color....my dear friend and neighbor who has been helping me and is the one who is setting up the donation fund for us and morgan..came down today, and she remembered her immediatly....the OT and PT both said they feel muscle movement on the left side..so there is a great chance she will regain use of her arm and leg.
    Since she is now able to show the difference between pain, itchy, and funny feeling she is helping the nurses treat her symptoms. and I know I said this, but she smiled!! I feel guilty for not being able to go back till tomorow night, because it has done her a world of good me being there working with her all weekend..but i guess that is just the way it has to be....I came home today with smiles on my face for the first time in weeks! :)

    I'm dancing around the family room - soooooo happy to see Morgan is making such wonderful progress and that, for what feels like the first time, you sound like a bit a weight is lifted from your shoulders. She sounds like a fighter...good thing for those strong, tenacious girls!! Keep the faith - I know I am. Sending you lots of good thoughts...esqmommy

    :) :) :) :) YEA!!!!! So glad that she's more aware and she smiled. That's terrific. The muscle movement in her lift side is fantastic. We'll continue praying that she regains full use of EVERYTHING. Thanks for keeping us all informed. WE care and want to know!!!

    It's been amzing watching her "wake up" and prove to all of us just what she is made of! She is shocking us all....well not me..because I knew she had it in her :) But I am just thrill to actualy see what i've beleived this whole time! It's just amazing....Thank you...all of you, It feels great to know that there are people who care...In my heart of hearts, i beleive she will be talking and walking again in No time..and she will be better than she was before ( apparently she has had chronic infection..menigitis maybe in her brain for atleast a month now ) and all this time I thought her attitude change was mental...I just know in time, she will be back to her old self again.

    Oh, this is so wonderful to hear!! I remember you saying the doctors were giving a very dire prognosis as to what she would recover. Well, she is showing them! Way to go, Morgan! And way to go, Jamie! I am sure she is picking up on your positive attitude and faith, and that is part of why she does so much better when you are there.

    I am so happy for you!
