I saw Monique this morning. Her sisters left today and her parents are still here. She was alert and talking more strongly. Her swelling (mostly from surgeries) has gone down tremendously. She is looking more like herself. :) She is able to have slightly more movement even though she is still in a great deal of pain.
Monique has heard about all the Facebook postings and the blog and was really happy and touched about all the responses. Keep them coming!
Her tolerance for all the pain is amazing. I think that is one of the biggest obstacles for her right now. I admire her strength and determination to get stronger every day.
