I am proud to say that our little princess had a much better day today. She was alert more today. She sat up in the bed and actually requested real food. First she asked for some gatorade. Then she asked for chocolate ice cream, chicken strips, green beans, cocoa krispies, and cream style corn. Of course she really didn't eat much but 4-5 spoons of ice cream. It was still awesome for her to ask for food especially since she hasn't eaten real food since Friday morning. We our so PROUD of how strong she is. She has been communicating with us all day. We can't really hear what she is saying because she has that mask on so we keep asking her what did you say and keep guessing stuff. ( This really frustrates her) Her grandfather came up with the brilliant idea of putting the stethiscope up to her mask or cheek. This helps some! I hope we all learn that we should all go that extra mile in life each and every day like Josie is doing. Please pray for our family. There has been about 9-11 people in this 1 hospital room since Friday!!! From parents to grandparents with aunts too. Everyone has gotten interupted sleep and there has been some emotional times as well. I want to also thank our family because everyone has helped in many, many ways to try to accomodate Josie and wash our clothes and take care of Jordan and stuff...........And A SPECIAL THANKS TO JEANIE AND DARREN(our extended family) for helping out so much!!!!!!!! God bless you!!!!!!!!!
