Today there has been LOTS of progress!!! She had 2 main IV lines come out, catheter came out, & she has been up walking with assistance today :):) A post surgical MRI was also done today for a new baseline for Dr. Fraser to have something to compare to in 3months. Now, for her physical update!!! The right side is showing improvement in strength, the left side of her face is still weak, and she still has double vision in both eyes. She understands that both of these may resolve with time. Jordan loves showing everyone her lopsided smile :) We are still in ICU but she will hopefully get moved tomorrow to a regular bed :) We had a talk today that it was going to be one step at a time, with a long road ahead. So, we set a goal to work towards. Jordan's goal is to be back @ MSU this fall to start nursing school!!! I think she is going to meet that goal!!!!
As a Mom this whole experience has been very emotional. The tears are flowing like a water faucet as I sit here and type this update why watching her sleep. It is like watching your baby girl say her first words, take her first steps, and it brings back so many memories of when Jordan & Taylor were little and doing all of those things together. Is it so emotional to watch the youngest twin, Taylor, be the strong one for the oldest twin, Jordan. When they were little the roles were reversed. Their bond is only going to be stronger because of this experience.
I also want to recognize some of the other special people in Jordan's life :) Jordan has a pretty awesome boyfriend named Cory, AKA Cor Cor to the girls. This young man has really stepped up to the plate and has not left her side. Not only has he been strong for Jordan, he has also been there emotionally for Taylor & Trevor(younger brother). Sara, a friend since kindergarten, has also been here every step of the way! We love you Nana & Sara! Mornissa, Jordan's college roommate was here also & it meant to world to Jordan. I want to also thank my wonderful husband Derek for all that he does for me & our family. Jordan loves you D & can't wait to rescue that new puppy you promised her :):)
Jordan has no idea @ this moment what a HUGE support system of family & friends she has! Please continue to keep her in your thoughts/prayers!! PRAY FOR JORDAN!!!!
