An Update on Samantha

20150706_195951
[Ed. — We’re keeping GRS’s post on top through the weekend because he is special to all of us; we wish all the best for Samantha especially and for the entire family as well. Newer posts are below. –Tengrain]

My youngest daughter is still showing signs of improvement and I remain hopeful. Today she had her NG tube removed, her PEG feeding tube installed, and is recovering well from that operation. She’s tracking people more frequently with her eyes as people walk across the room. Earlier in the week, she swallowed two spoons of applesauce – first oral food since the accident. She still exhibits decerebrate posturing and is on many medications to help treat symptoms. I try to focus on the positive while understanding the whole picture.

I don’t know where we’ll land with this as recovery will still take months and years. It’s a rough road ahead with a lot of uncertainty. A family friend was kind enough to start a gofundme page yesterday for us to raise funds for covering medical expenses. Please don’t feel obligated to donate anything, but please do share on social media to help spread the word.
