Saturday Updates on Natalie!!!
x
Behold, she walks!!!!
x
Thanks so much for SO many prayers!!!
x
Friday Updates on Natalie!
x
- (Friday night update) Natalie was not able to get out of bed to walk yet today. She is still experiencing a lot of pain, which is expected with this sort of surgery. She did use the bathroom on her own, which was an important indicator of success with her neuro functioning. And they did wheel her out to see the trains this afternoon, expecting that tomorrow she'll be able to walk out to see them (hopefully!)
x
- Had to remove her IV because it was hurting her so much everytime they'd try to give her pain medicine. Hopefully a new IV location will make that better!
x
- They have tried to get her up to move around, unfortunately she is hurting too much for it to be successful. They are going to let her rest more and see if she can try again later.
x
Thank you for the continued prayers and well wishes!!!

Glad to hear the surgery went well and that she's doing all right. I've been thinking a lot about her the last few days. Being around little ones at work will do that to a girl.

I will continue to keep Natalie, your family, the medical team, and all related people in my thoughts.

Katie, what a good sister you are to field the many friends and relations on updates, etc. I will rest better tonight knowing the surgery is over and successful. Prayers obviously help, but a family like yours that envelops these littles in love...well, I think there are rewards in heaven for following the plan.... Much love to all of you, and I will now pray for a speedy recovery.

My heart goes out to that beautiful girl and her family. Thinking of them (and you all).

So, so glad to hear things are going well. Natalie sounds like a real trooper, and is so fortunate to have such a loving and supportive family around her - please send along our best wishes for her recovery.

She doesn't even know her own strength. What a brave girl. So happy to hear she's doing well!
