Haley Chaney Update 2-25-08

Haley Chaney's CarePage at Lutheran was updated today at around midnight. I will put the entire contents of the update in the comments section at the bottom of the original post about the accident, but here is just a little bit:
God continues to answer prayer. Haley passed the Swallow Study this morning and is now able to drink thickened liquids and pureed foods. We were supposed to ease her into it, but how do you tell someone who hasn’t eaten in two weeks that they have to stop? She held it down but ended up with a stomachache.

Haley also began forming words and sentences today. She also wrote out her name and could read various things written to her. She cried many times as well. We had a hard time understanding what she was trying to say to us. That was frustrating for all of us. We did hear her loud and clear, though, that she wanted to go home. She displayed for the first time emotion, frustration, and despair. Pray that God gives her victory over those feelings and that she would find the strength to keep pushing toward the goal.
Prayers for Haley and her family. Strength.
