Therapy for Ali

"So Ali's out of the coma, right?"

I had to really think about the answer to this question even after all of the updates I've posted with pictures of Ali crying with eyes and mouth wide open. Yesterday, I spoke to the beautiful and charming Susan ump-teen times, and half of those times Ali was fussing and crying which makes me laugh more now than ever.

Babies cry.

Babies, who aren't in comas, cry.

I hadn't really thought of it that way, but it's true.

Praise God.

Ali has been out of a coma just about ever since the beautiful and charming Susan arrived on the scene.

Yesterday, Ali started physical therapy. Babies in comas usually don't get signed up for physical therapy. Susan wanted to share a couple of pictures with you all. The picture above and left is Ali before physical therapy. She's quite uncomfortable (a broken collar bone and rib will do that to you). The picture to the right is Ali after physical therapy. Sleeping like a baby--who's not in a coma.

Now there's even talk of sending Ali across the Bay Bridge to a rehab place in Oakland. They don't plan stuff like that for babies in comas, either. My only concern is that she'd have to travel across the Bay Bridge.
