Smiles Tonight

Evening everyone.

Boy am I glad I didn’t post earlier. Our girl was having another hard day and I didn’t have the heart to sit and post.

Her pain was really getting to her and I was afraid we were going to have another full day of tears, sleeping and pain medication.

Our girl showed all of us!

It’s 10:30 at night and instead of being fast asleep Ceci had the courage to fight the pain and sit up with the assistance of her bed. She’s watching Glee and using her Therapy putty to keep up her strength in her hands 😊

She’s still not allowed to eat any solid foods but her appetite is slowly coming back to her. She ate 1.5 strawberry jello cups today and an apple juice box. I know it doesn’t sound like much but after these major surgeries we are taking the as a win!

She’s getting daily shots of a blood thinner to prevent any clots, still getting iv zosyn through her Picc, and pain medication through her Picc and deep vein access point.

She still has a long road to recovery but we are so happy to see her smiling again and having the courage to fight the pain to get better.

Tomorrow’s big goal is to sit up without assistance from the bed, on the side of the bed. With so many incisions on her abdomen it’s going to be so hard but she’s ready to try.

She’s CeciStrong 💪

Huge heart hugs to you all for everything you have done for our gal and our family 🌺 we are so lucky to have such amazing friends by our side.

Be back soon. I have to coordinate a trip home for a little bit tomorrow, to pick up medications for Ceci that they do not have here.

Lots of love, hugs and Gratefulness 😘
Alexis, Cecilia Marie and Our Special Family 💜
