Update from Kristin: February 1st, 2008

Today was a great day here at the hospital. Taylor was awake this morning and has been all day. Considering the fact that we pretty much had to throw water on her face in the days past to get her to wake up, we feel that this is great progress.

She has been to the playroom twice, ate half a sandwich, drawn in her "diary", and has taken a bath! It was such a delight to see her singing in the bathtub. We have all enjoyed having the "old" Taylor back with us.

She will begin radiation on Monday. They are fairly certain that she will need a blood transfusion on Sunday because her hemoglobin is a little low and they need it to be higher for radiation. She is also still having a few breathing problems when she sleeps. They said as soon as her breathing problems resolve, she should be able to return home. We don't expect we will be out of here before she beings radiation on Monday and that is fine. We are just happy to see her bouncing back. Keep your fingers crossed that things continue to improve!
