We woke up early and rushed straight to talk to her head doctor, Dr. Balamurugan a suave sweetheart of a professional man. He informed us of the change and also that her right eye is definitely opening and no longer solely to pain. Her oxygen saturation is staying at 98-100% despite the change and her lungs are improving greatly. She is accepting food through a tube in her nose, although they are still giving her milk despite her allergy (they don't have ricemilk but they sure do in California!!). Her mild sinus infection, external ear skin infection and abrasions are getting better. The crazy swelling in her left hand and arm and gnarly contusion bruise have finally started to head for the hills. Her arm is still however in a sling from her fracture on her left scapula. Also the infection in her tracheotomy is improved and responding well to anti-biotics. Her mouth moved or flinched when I was playing 'the Microphones' for her and singing along. Me and mom told her all about the wildness planned for the upcoming benefits so you'd all better deliver.
Also at the meeting we met with two doctors from here at Apollo to discuss accompanying her through transport back to Stanford. It may work out that we'll have to buy a section of a commercial plane for everyone and all the gear and her on a stretcher but nothing is set up yet. This is surely a coordination nightmare with airlines and airports and ambulances and government and visas and passports etc.. Things however are obviously looking up. We may even make it home in time for my birthday on the 21st of March. That would be the be the best birthday present I could ever get. Thank you, Thank you.
