Lydia got to enjoy some of the same sunshine we did today!  She went outside, in her wheelchair for a while, and although she is still in a coma, her eyes were open the whole time.   There were chickadees eating, and she turned her face towards them.
Lydia also got to have a small freezie today, and she did a bit of slow swallowing. 
Her bright pink casts have many new signatures on them - the nurses and therapists have been busy signing!
Lydia has had an ice pack around her neck often today, to try to ease some of the tension in her neck muscles. The Neurology doctor reported that he felt the neck muscle difficulties were muscle spasms rather than whiplash.  He will gradually increase her muscle relaxants, in an effort to provide some relief.
 An 11 year old friend of Lydia's sent the following message to us:  How wise children are!
Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. 
His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
