Olivia is doing a lot better this morning. She is moving her right side a lot better. She is still weak, but starting to smile and kick with her legs. Unfortunately her MRI got pushed off until Tuesday because of emergencies that pushed her off. The speech therapist is going to evaluate her today so she can start eating, drinking and get the NG tube out of her nose. They are talking about letting us go home tomorrow after the MRI. Keep our fingers crossed. I will post a new pic tonight.

Olivia is still at Devos Children's Hospital. Her brain is still having seizures which they haven't stopped. Her body is not seizing but her brain waves continue to show seizure patterns. Please pray for Olivia's recovery. Rick is in Mexico working and the stress on everyone is really high. Grandpa and grandma Wood are staying with the kids and doing a great job. Grandpa and grandma Shane are coming up to the hospital so that I can go and visit with the other kids. Olivia still can't move the the right side of her body due to the seizures on the left side of her brain. She had a CT scan so they know it's not a stroke or bleeding in the brain.

The girls first shower

Savanna and Olivia got to attend their first bridal shower. They spent most of their time playing in the nursery area with their cousin, but they were excited to go. Nicole had everything so nice and we had a great time.

Olivia's 6th Birthday!

Olivia had her birthday party on Sunday. We had a great time. She wanted to have a "flowers and butterflies" theme. We had shredded beef on buns with BBQ sauce, cheesey potatoes, oriental noodle salad, coleslaw and chips. Everyone said the cake tasted good. Olivia got a lot of new DVD's and clothes.

We're on our second round of the flu and this one was terrible! All of the small kids have ear infections again. Here's Logan getting a breathing treatment from daddy.
