Brigid has continued to improve daily. This past week, she has started to make small movements on her right side, which she could previously not move at all. She has been able to make slight movements with her right arm, leg, and has even wiggled her toes while getting her toenails painted. B has been doing a great job in physical therapy. This week while sitting on a bench, she was able to bend over, pick an object up off the floor, and sit back up mostly by herself. She was also able to sit on the bench and kick a ball back and forth with Dad. Overall, it has been a great week for Brigid, and we all look forward to what she will do next.
Brigid was successfully moved down to Salem, MA today to continue with and enhance her rehab. This change of scenery had to have been great for B and hopefully it motivates her to do even more while she’s down there!
Sunday was Brigid and Katie’s 18th birthday! B stayed awake most of the day for the birthday festivities. She was able to enjoy some pudding pie and a little bit of chocolate ganache! B had many visitors, which put some smiles on her face and, with a little assistance, she helped to unwrap most of her gifts!
Recovery is going pretty well for miss Brig, as she was pretty awake today and noticeably in less pain. She’s headed in the right direction and will be headed to Salem, MA on Monday to start rehab. More PT only means more and more progress that we’ve all been hoping and praying for. On the right track and always staying positive with the best smile!
Brig has had a busy past few days. Monday, when the sun finally decided to come out again, she got a surprise visitor who hasn’t seen her in a while. Her dog Eddie made an appearance outside in the courtyard with B.
Today, Brigid got the previously removed piece of her skull put back in, which is so exciting! Surgery went well and she’s doing well in her recovery. A little painful, but we all know how “Brigid Strong” she is. 🙂
