On The Mend

Day 6 update:

For the first time since she came down with high fever 10 days ago, Vera smiles.

I was well enough to be there to catch it with Ian. We were so happy & relieved to see a glimmer of her old self.
Shortly after this video, she fell asleep for the next 5 hours and didn't awaken when we had to leave. She is evidently still weak, still having loose stools, and still needing suctioning. But the smiles are a sign that she's on the mend.

Thank you all for your prayers for her continued healing.
