we got through DAY 21

we got through DAY 21! that's a good milestone.

Uma gets better every day.

today she was mouthing words, like she was trying to talk to us.

(she can't talk yet because the tracheostomy in her throat diverts air away from her mouth, but the fact that she's trying to talk is majorly good.)

i just wanted to share the good news about how Uma's trying to talk. it's exciting.

oh, and john played some music for her today and she tapped her foot along with the music. which is also a great sign. lots of great signs these days.

thanks for your continued prayers and good thoughts.
