Day 28, The Voice Of An Angel

I wasn’t sure if she’d ever be able to speak again. It was a fear that ran through my mind constantly these past 3 1/2 weeks. It was possible right? I mean she had an unknown tumor that burst which caused a major stroke and 2 brain surgeries. So the possibility of not speaking again (among other fears) was right up there on my list of possible outcomes from all this.

I can tell you in fact that Amber has the voice of an angel. It is soft, sweet, gentle, and. . . well, angelic. It’s hers, it’s our Amber’s, and I will forever thank God for it.

Last night Amber told me that she misses home. I can’t blame her. I can’t even begin to imagine everything she has and is going through and how absolutely terrifying it must be for her. “What do you miss most about home?” I ask. She starts to cry. . . “Rea” she says. Rea is our 16 1/2 year old cat and Amber’s buddy.

This morning Amber says “I want to go home…” I cringe a little because I know what’s coming next. “Why do you want to go home?” I ask. “Because I want to do my homework”. That response completely sideswipes me!! Ha Ha!! Does she really maturely understand enough to put the fact of how long she’s been in here with how much school she’s missed which results in just how much work she needs to make up? Perhaps so.

Her G-Tube spot is still sore, especially when Lauren from PT got her in and out of beds, wheelchairs, and floor mats. We got to do PT down on the 6th floor where their gym is. On the wall in there it says “Super Heroes in Training”. Ain’t that the truth!

After a shower, Amber was exhausted but stayed awake enough to enjoy her 1st lunch tray meal! After some bites of Mac and Cheese, carrots, and chicken, she washed it all down with apple juice from a straw! She did so well that she has advanced to 3 soft food meals a day AND soft snacks and clear liquids with Matt or I!!!

I have to say that I am in awe of Amber Grace. She is so brave and so tough. I cannot thank God enough for her and for her being here with us today. I also cannot thank you all enough for your continued prayers, love, and support through this tumultuous journey. It helps us more than you will ever know. . . 💜
