Thanks everyone, for helping to keep our spirits up with all your prayers and encouragement. Kerri has been trying to be able to move ahead with her recovery but still experiences side effects from the coma that make it difficult to start getting out of bed and feeling better. This evening Dr. Cantu gave her a 2 hour booster of ketamine to, hopefully, give her some relief to be able to start getting out of the room in her wheelchair sometime soon. He and Dr. Frederico Ramos are reassuring her that things will get better and to just take her time as far as moving forward. Dr. Cantu sat by her bedside for 2 1/2 hours tonight administering the booster. We were able to share Kerri's photo book with him so now he knows all of you! I sure would like to bring Dr. Cantu, Dr. Luis, and Dr. Ramos home with us, as well as a number of the nurses to take care of everyone we love at home!
We have learned that our time here happens to be during Monterrey's best weather of the year. The days are just warm enough to really enjoy being outside - we can't wait for Kerri to be able to take in some of the sunny outside parts of the hospital. We're lucky to be able to run right next door to OXXO, which is a convenience store. When we first arrived I thought it was the hugs and kisses store, but soon I learned better!
We've exhausted our 8 episodes of Gilmore Girls, and have now moved onto Kerri's Golden Girl DVD's. She was able to take in a favorite flick today - Sleeping Beauty. We've discovered that Jessica, a wonderful patient down the hall, also likes Gilmore Girls. When Kerri is a bit better, I can't wait for them to meet and maybe take in an episode together!
Erin is now at Nana, Poppop and Uncky's house. We know she'll get lot's of TLC from all of our family there. We know she had a terrific time on her field trip to NYC this week - thanks to everyone watching over her with your phone calls, e-mails and by opening your homes to her. We hear she's even becoming an expert at doing laundry - Erin do you still want that job when we come home?
Thanks for karing4kerri!
