Facebook Updates from the Hospital

November 23rd:
"For those who have heard something and are wondering, Berlyn was in an accident yesterday and has a severe brain injury in critical condition in the ICU. We will be at the hospital  for a while...Please pray that she comes out ok and we get to see our spunky cute Berlyn back very soon. Please pray with us, this sweet, stubborn girl was meant to do good on this earth, we need all your prayers!!!"

November 24th:
"UPDATE: Berlyn is stable right now but is still in a lot of pain. We won't get another CT scan until Sunday to see if there is any progress in swelling or bleeding in the brain. Just keeping her comfortable as best we can so her body can heal quickly, we will try to update everyone as much as we can. We really appreciate all of the prayers and support on our behalf. Thank you so much!!!!"

November 24th:
"Woke up because Berlyn was stirring in bed and she smiled at us and talked to us and started pointing for things and grabbing for her elephant with right hang, left still doesn't move. Gave mom and dad more hope and faith, just what we needed. She is letting us know she is fighting!"

November 24th:
"Thank you everyone for your sweet thoughts and prayers, we have felt them already. Please continue to pray for our precious baby. We will update you as we know and see more. Thank you so much, there is no way I could tag all of you and thank you so I hope you see this!"

November 25th:
"UPDATE on Berlyn: she is getting better everyday. her swelling has gone down a ton and is starting to look more like my little baby again. She started eating and drinking milk so she was FINALLY able to come off the IV fluids. the CT scan this morning showed new blood but they are just going to continue to watch it and no surgery. she will get another CT scan in a few days. she still cant move the left side of her body or hold her head up. she started working with a physical therapist. they may move us out of the ICU soon and to another floor since she has been stable. so many things going on but slowly making improvements. Thank you again for all your prayers! Please continue to pray with us!"

November 26th:
"Berlyn moved her arm and leg a little more today, not much but it did improve. She held her head up today but still a little wobbly. still not sitting up or anything. she will probably be moved out of the ICU tomorrow, but still not sure when we will be home. She was very irritable today but probably because she didnt get much sleep all day :( praying for a better day tomorrow! Thanks again to everyone who has said prayers for our family, we really appreciate it!!!!!"

November 27th:
"This little girl started out with a cranky day but that completely changed by this afternoon. We were moved out of the ICU today and I think Berlyn knew that because she became the happiest girl after that. She has been playful and talkative and she ate a full dinner finally! Again moving her left arm and leg a little more today. Still don't know when we will go home because of the fracture and brain trauma and dr wants to see more movement on the left side before she leaves. Improvement!! I can breathe a little! Thanks for the prayers keep em coming!!!! The Lord is listening!"

November 27th:
"Thankful for angels in heaven and on earth for watching over my little girl!"

November 28th:
"This experience has made me realize/remember how amazing and supportive our family and friends are, how precious our little baby is, and what great peace and comfort the Atonement can bring! Counting our blessings through this trial! Thank you all sooooo much!!"

November 29th:
"Been at the hospital one week now and still no one can say anything about a discharge :( sleepless nights. So sad today Berlyn was wining and I look at her she is grabbing her left arm with her right arm and trying to give it to me...she knows it doesn't work right :( but on a brighter note she can hold her weight a little better when she stands with assistance and she can almost sit up and she rolls around and wanted to get down and walk this morning thinking she could....all good signs!!!!! Long ways to go but she's come a long way already!

November 29th:
"Finally let us go outside for a walk!! Berlyn loved it!"

November 29th:
"So Berlyn is at Cardons til Monday then getting transported to Phoenix Children's for inpatient physical therapy for a week or two. Can I just say I am so sick of hospitals and I just want to be home with a healthy family for the holidays? Count your blessings! So glad she is still with us!"

December 1st:
"Yes this little girl is doing so much better! Her leg is getting so much strength she can now stand up on her own and take a few wobbly steps. Her left arm is a little slower but still making small improvements. We are still planning on going to Phoenix Children's on Monday for rehab. Thank you for the continued prayers!"

December 4th:
"Well....WE ARE HOME!!!!! the medical director from our insurance company looked over Berlyn's case and decided she didn't need intense inpatient physical therapy at Phoenix Children's hospital, so they discharged us today!!! Now we just have check ups with the neuro surgeon every few weeks for at least 6 months til her fracture is healed and she has outpatient physical therapy 3 times a week for as long as she needs it. Still praying she gets full use out of her left side and the fracture heals correctly on its own so she doesn't need surgery!!! So glad to be home though and in our own beds! Thank you everyone for your continuous prayers!"
