It looks like last evening was a turning point for Katie. Jason said it is absolutely amazing to see the difference in her today. She didn't get to rest very well last night but this morning she is already asking for cereal.
Her neurologist has already seen her this morning and she was able to raise her right arm off the bed and give him a high five (bump his hand). She was also able to squeeze his fingers a little with her fingers.
The have taken the EEG machine off and it showed that everything was normal.
They are not going to try to do another MRI. The doctors said that seeing "clinical results" are better than seeing a picture of her brain. Major praise!
They will be taking her off her antibiotics today since they have concluded that this was viral and not bacterial.
Today is going to be a big day for her. They really want her to start moving around and trying to get up. She is really weak and stiff but she nodded that she wanted to try and get up. So they will be helping her sit up on the edge of her bed or in a chair to see if she can sit up by herself and making sure she can do this without making her head hurt worse.
They are also hopeful today that they will be able to move her out of the ICU to a normal room on a normal floor. What a huge praise! She will be able to get more uninterrupted sleep and obviously this means she is getting better!
Thank you Lord for continuing to heal Katie!
