Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart

Christmas Chimichonga

Ashley is looking really good today. Just as we were about to head down to the cafeteria Ashley woke up and was ready to play. She had both eyes wide open and immediately spotted her balloon. We had about 20 minutes with her before she got the sleepy eyes and was ready to go back to sleep. She is still having trouble with her high blood pressure today. They are giving her several different meds in higher and higher doses and she just keeps on with the high BP. They told us they were approaching the adult doses with some of the meds. She is having withdrawals from some of the meds she had while on the vent so she has the "shakes." Aside from these things she looks great. She is slowly making progress. I am so thankful for this after the day we had last Tuesday.
So we got her back to sleep and went down to the cafeteria. I was expecting a Christmas ham or turkey. But instead we got......Christmas Chimichongas! What are they thinking? Allie took a bite and she liked them but they were "cold & hard" and they tasted weird. We ate our chimichongas and were just happy that the cafeteria was open for us to eat today.
Merry Christmas to all......
