Here are some pictures of our make-shift Christmas. Christmas morning we brought the Challies traditional Christmas breakfast and stockings to the hospital. The nurses looked after Amelia so Susanna could come back home for a couple hours of opening gifts and eating Christmas dinner. It wasn’t what we envisioned, but it all worked out to be a great day.
An update on Amelia – as you can see she’s her usual chipper, smiley self and doing well. She’s gained about 1/2 pound so far. There are no new tests or results yet, she will receive an MRI to check neurological functions on Tuesday. We hope to have a fairly clear picture after that of what the path forward looks like. With the feeding tube she is not feeling hungry and so not showing interest in eating, she that will be a big challenge to conquer once we come off the feeding tube. Thank you everyone for your prayers, visits, and well wishes. We’ll probably still be in the hospital most of this week so feel free to stop in.
