:D My 11 year old niece Lauren was released from the hospital today:D :D and is resting at home with her family. She has responded very strongly to the meds she was given for the paralyisis in her legs/lungs from GBD
She is gingerly walking but with the help of a walker. The Docs say her prognosis is excellent and she will soon start physical therapy to help her get back as close to 100 percent as possible.:D

Needless to say we are all encouraged and very thankful for everything and everyones prayers and good wishes.

My entire family, myself, and my little niece have asked me to express how grateful they are to this forumns members for your prayers.

We are enternally thankful to all of you.

This is great news! Tell Lauren to take it slow. Here's hoping she makes a full recovery with minimal to no lingering effects from the GBD.

You're welcome from all of us, but she should concentrate on recovering and FOLLOWING the rehabilitationist's directions. It's gonna be a P.I.T.A., but they're there for a reason.

All the best to her and the family.

I was gone for a bit, and just caught up on Lauren's story. What a hard thing!

Prayers for her complete recovery.

When I was about her age I was put in the hospital with an undiagnosed high fever. I was on the verge of ice baths because it was spiking toward 106 degrees. The hospital was overcrowded, so I had a roll away in the hall. That high a fever drives you toward a strange place, a bit hallucinatory. It was, what I remember of it, one of the best experiences of my life. I was on a ward with older folks, most of whom were recovering from broken bones. Because I was in the hall I got to know all of them as they limped by. Most stopped, had a word for me, wished me well. I never did spike to the point of an ice bath, and I think the comeraderie of that ward really helped me get better.

Anyway, I'm glad they've got a handle on this, and best wishes to Lauren.
