"Baby Steps" - that's the wonderful advice Kerri's friends Judy and Lindsay have shared with us. Judy and Lindsay have gone through this journey before. We are happy to say some baby steps occurred today. Kerri felt well enough play a hand of UNO this afternoon. She also laughed tonight during our visit with Dr. Cantu. He came to Kerri's room at 9:30 tonight, sat down to talk with us, and made us feel he had all the time in the world to help Kerri feel better. He has consulted with Dr. Schwartzman and decided to change Kerri's medications for helping her get through the side effects of the ketamine coma. Kerri is anxious to start feeling more like herself again, but continues to "hang in there" with great courage.
A sidenote to Kerri's fellow Gilmore Girls fans (Erin, Jen, Megan, Aunt Lill,
Jeff) - We watched Kerri's favorite "I love you Luke Danes" episode tonight.
Ordering Kerri's meals can be tricky with the language barrier. Recently though, a mixup worked to our advantage. We tried to order red jello (gellatina roja), but ended up with a delious strawberry smoothie, which is now Kerri's favorite hospital cuisine. Kerri has also been creating her own dessert by mixing peanut butter we picked up at HEB into chocolate ice cream.
Thanks for your prayers and encouraging words. Thay mean so much to us.
