Cassie seems to be coming out of the fight. She just opened her eyes for us, first time in 2 days, and I about cried. The swelling has gone down so much. She ate a pancake, is talking, and watching Bug's Life. This morning's CRP is at 11.5, down from 17.7 yesterday, and 28.2 (highest it has ever been) from Saturday. It is dropping like a rock, and we are so glad. She seems to do so well on Sundays, and I think it has to do with all the prayers that are given for her that day. They expect they can move her back to the floor today and out of PICU.
The central PICC line procedure went well yesterday and the stitches from the spinal cord incision were removed during the sedation. That area looks "great" according to the Nuero-surgeon.
