Day 12

Today's progress includes:
  • Kira was able to have a phone conversation with her mom today. She said one word for every breath she took, but she is getting some sound back.
  • Kira will be transported back to Sacramento tomorrow, to Mercy General's acute inpatient rehabilitation. Doctors are estimating she will spend three weeks in rehab as an inpatient, then continue being seen as an outpatient.
  • The clot in her brain has dissolved and she is not in danger of having another stroke. She will have follow up appointments with cardiology and neurology in two weeks.
Once Kira is settled back in Sacramento, Leona will let us know if she would like visitors.

Hi Kira and Kira's family! I got here from Andrea's blog, and I am glad to hear that you'll be at MGH. They have really good speech therapists there, especially the one named Jennifer.... You are in good hands!

Got a tip to check out the blog from reading Andrea's. I am praying so hard for both Kira and her sweet baby. May God continue to give her strength and determination to get better.

I found your blog through Andrea's as well. We have been praying for you in our Bible Study and are thankful for improved health and that you are able to be moved! We will continue to pray for you!
