Day 3

Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Today was a little less uplifting but not discouraging. The highlight of the day was that one of our priests and a young man, C, going to school with our priests (pray for him!) came to visit Galadriel and brought her Holy Communion.

Galadriel did well with the occupational therapist. She is numb on her right side but her legs started to tingle and she was able to tell which finger the therapist was touching (haha without looking of course) She got up into a chair again.

I wasn't able to stay long today as we are expecting alot of snow and needed to get Sam over to serve at Mass. I am hoping I can get over to the hospital earlier tomorrow and spend the day. I plan to bring a big box of old pictures (some nice toddlers a number of years ago made havoc and got them all out of order) and we'll go through them together and work on re-organizing them, I think she'll enjoy that! We all love pictures.

Thank you again for all the prayers, they are what keep us hoping while our heads are spinning like 60.


  1. Been praying along with everyone else. Great to hear about your daughter's progress!!

    I just noticed I'm on Damien's account and not sure how to switch so you know who this is. ;) Hopefully. :)

    May our blessed Mother bless you
