Today is the Day

Today is the day you have made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. I won't worry about tomorrow. I'm trusting in what you say. Today is the day!

I woke up this morning ready. I felt positive and filled with joy. I called down and the nurse said that Alyssa had a great night. She was able to go down on two of her blood pressure medicines, her heart rate looked really good and she peed twice!! I was going to stay in the room, take a shower and eat breakfast while waiting for the shift change but then the nurse said that Alyssa had her eyes open and was looking around this morning. I practically ran down there because I haven't seen her with her eyes open yet. But she was sleeping when I got there. I know I will see her with her eyes open and I can't wait! It is just so wonderful to see her move when I talk to her. She loves moving her arms out of her snuglet and the nurse said it is a matter of time before she starts pulling stuff out. That scares me a little but the nurse assured me that it is perfectly normal.

But what gave me so much to look forward to was what the nurse said before I left. When Alyssa is off a couple of the machines that she is on I can hold her! I can't describe to you how much I am looking forward to this. I have so much hope that it will happen soon but in the meantime I am perfectly content to sit by her little bed and watch her. I know there will be a day when I can do so much more for her and I have to keep faith and a postitive outlook. Today is the day!!
