10:00 AM Thursday

Katie seemed to have a good night last night. She got a lot of sleep which is great! She ate a little breakfast this morning too.

She was able to get out of bed, with the help of three people, and sit in a chair while they changed her sheets. She was able to sit in the chair for about five minutes. This made her nauseous and made her head hurt. It did not hurt as bad as yesterday so that is some improvement. They will try again later today.

She is also staying awake for longer periods of time. She is making small improvements everyday!

Baby Reese's heartbeat is still good so that is great news.

Thank you for your continued prayers and comments. I have been printing out every email, prayer and comment and I know Katie will enjoy reading them when she is able.

I posted some pictures of Zach below so she could look at them until he is able to come visit. :)

It is so wonderful to hear that Katie continues to improve. I enjoyed all the pictures of Zach- and could not help but think about how exciting it will be when you get to show us all the pictures of baby Reese.

Prayers and hugs,

Katie via sweet Shannon, I've been praying for you and Reese from the Psalms. You have so many friends weeping and rejoicing with you! I look forward to the day when you again make your boast in the Lord who is your strength and shield.

Much love,
Miss B.
p.s. Get your spunk back, and I promise I'll do my hair however you say.
