Pray For Rosie

29Mar/103

Update – 3/29

Just a quick update on our stay here at TIRR........We are already on our fourth week of rehab and Rosie is continuing to do therapy 4 times a day. Rosie is projected to be re evaluated in three weeks and pending progress they will either send Rosie home or prolong her stay. After obtaining Rosie's CT scan from the LTAC Facility and comparing them to her newer one, the doctor discovered more swelling in her brain. We have since consulted a top neurologist here in the Medical Center and have decided to have a brain surgery and put into place a permanent shunt to alleviate current and future swelling. As far as brain surgery goes it is a relatively simple and common procedure. She will then spend 3 days at Hermann Memorial and resume therapy here at TIRR, a day for the procedure has yet to be set. I have had the chance to take Rosie outside last week and take in some of the sunny weather which I hoped she enjoyed. She has also been breathing on her own and should have her trach switched to the smallest one available in the coming days. Rosie has been having her arms and feet casted to help with the spasticity for range of motion and future improvements. We have not yet been able to establish any form of communication with Rosie, but remain optimistic. She is looking so good and seems to be improving each day.

Emily is doing well and has her mama's smile, I should be posting some new pictures soon.

With sincere hearts we thank all of you for continued support and prayer.......God Bless.

  1. Thank you thank you thank you for the update Tony. I am so so sorry to hear about the additional swelling. I am praying for you today… you and Rosie. You don’t know this yet… but my mother is coming down to visit… and father, from Columbus, Ohio in the next couple of weeks. They’ve been praying for you… and can’t wait to join us at the fundraiser.

    I’m glad you’ve taken Rosie outside to enjoy some of this beautiful weather. I hate that you’ve not been able to really communicate with Rosie… that just crushes my heart… more than you know.

    We love you all… and continue to pray pray pray… you’re always in our thoughts. Please continue to keep us updated… it just means so much more than you know.

    Please let me know if there’s anything we can do for you… okay? We’ll see you soon Tony… and you too Rosie.
