It was one year ago today, Monday July 29th, 2013, when my team was starting our first day at an orphanage in Baoji China. I remember clearly that everyone had gone to their assigned rooms and I was casing the place and getting a feel for what their physical therapy needs were. I walked outside where there was a class of one year olds in baby walkers all tied together (to avoid escapees). I glanced over the sea of black hair and brown eyes and there was the cutest set of dimples I had ever seen. Maggie was looking right at me as if to say, "you found me". I knew in that moment that she was special and the rest is history...
We have had several good days in a row now. Every day she seems a little bit better and a little more functional. They postponed our MRI until Thursday because CV Anesthesia is no longer available tomorrow. That then postpones when we can start on the rehab floor. It is a bit frustrating but there is really nothing we can do about it.
1. For the MRI to look BEAUTIFUL. It would be awesome if her abscesses were gone.
2. For continued recovery to her previous functional level.
3. For stamina for Trent and I as we try a new system of switching off every 24 hours.
4. For her WBC count to improve. It is a little low and they are re-testing it on Thursday. I am really not sure of the significance but the infectious disease doctor wasn't pleased with it yesterday.
