I will continue posting Get Well Photo Cards for Uma as I receive them...thank you to everyone who has sent them so far. (They are awesome, every single one of them.) I printed out many of these photos before I left New York yesterday, and showed them to Uma. The photos that I received after leaving for California will be printed and sent out to Ums a.s.a.p.
QUICK UPDATE, just received via a text message from Marie:
"Ums passed ventriculostomy test overnight!! Hope to remove tube soon, & no internal shunt. Today try off ventilator. Continue good vibes--her spirit's kinda low."
That's very good news about the ventriculostomy test. Let's keep the love going Urp's way--we know it's frustrating for her not to be able to talk. Continue to visualize "no internal shunt" until they tell us absolutely that she will not need a freaking internal shunt, and visualize her getting off of the ventilator and off of the tracheostomy, so she can talk to us again. And then visualize the "speech" part of Uma's brain being beautiful and perfect. Thank you.
