Today has been like the day before moving day: saying good bye to "neighbours and friends" we have made at Sick Kids and at Ronald McDonald House, thanking the medical team at 5C, visiting the team in Intensive Care for a final thank you and good bye before leaving the hospital, and packing up all of the posters, photos, and banners that have adorned Lydia' room for the past 5 weeks.  We will be moving to Bloorview tomorrow morning with an 8 am ambulance transport between facilities.  I have thought a few times how different this ambulance ride will be from the one that took us from Grand River to the helipad, and then the Ornge ambulance/helicopter that flew us to Sick Kids.  Tomorrow's journey takes us to a new home where much recovery will take place.  We visited the Holland Bloorview facility this afternoon, and it looks great!  Lydia will have a lot of stimulation and therapy.  We have been told that remarkable progress happens in two months of therapy, at the stage Lydia is at.
Is she still in her coma?  Short answer: yes.  I will try for a longer answer tomorrow.  But I must get to bed, because moving day is tomorrow!
Psalm 103:2  Bless the Lord, O my soul.  All my inmost being, praise His holy name.
