Lydia has had a good day back at Holland Bloorview.  She had an audiology appointment this morning, and her hearing is fine.  We have not suspected any difficulties with her hearing, in fact it seems quite acute to us.
In her PT/OT session, she enjoyed throwing bean bags and balls into hoops, and going for a walk down the halls in the walker.  She is building stamina for further distances.  She also enjoyed a short hallway walk with Grandma and Grandpa later in the day. 
Lydia has had a few emotional outbursts today, but they have been short lived.  It was encouraging to hear from an experienced therapist that Lydia calms quickly compared to most brain injury patients.  May it always be so. 
Lydia has had a great appetite today, and is eating well.  (I  thought she just liked my cooking, and so ate well at home!  I guess not.  She is just needing the fuel for her brain and body, and probably enjoying the tastes after months of peptamen!)

Psalm 40:16
But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say, "The Lord is great!"
