As it goes, Kiera has up and down days. She was running a fever between 101 and 103.2 yesterday, but still managed to be pretty animated even though she wasn't feeling well. They are running labs and trying to figure out what's causing her fever but so far don't know.
She's getting more active with her mouth and likes CHOMPING on fingers. That girl definitely has a bite! We are working along with the speech therapists to get her suck back, which she lost when she was in her coma, and to draw her tongue forward.
Dr. Glasser, the pulmonologist, has given me his best guess conservative estimate, that Kiera will probably be in the hospital 6 more months---just in case you were about to ask me when she's coming home. We are getting road weary. I'm glad I went to stations of the cross Friday. I just try to remember that we are all given crosses to bear and that there will be a homecoming day.
I've attached a few Easter Sunday pics of Kiera in her Easter dress and the family in our home away from home. Enjoy!
