Yesterday (Tuesday) she did improve. The nurse said Leia was breathing over the ventilator which is wonderful, so now the ventilator is just giving her more support. Her color is slowly returning and she was responding.
My cousin Tammie, Melonie's sister posted this on FB yesterday evening
I haven't heard anything yet today. I've had several breakdowns since hearing the news.
On a different note, yesterday was even harder. Jan 31, 2012 was the 7 year anniversary of my dear best friend Brandon's death. I try so hard to not think about it but I always do. Last night I was going through some boxes with old letters and cards. I hadn't cried yesterday but I found 3 letters Brandon had written me while he was working at Big Lake one summer. And boy did I loose it. Seeing his hand writing and reading his words, I miss him so much. I can't believe it's been 7 years already.
Anyway, if anyone reads this, please pray for Leia and Melonie and Leonard. They can use all the prayers they can get. Mom and I are hoping to go up to Seattle either tomorrow or Friday to see them. I don't know how I'm going to handle that.
This is Leia with her mommy and daddy Melonie and Leonard on her 1st birthday last fall.
And this is Leia February 1, 2012. I love you darling Leia.
