Haley Chaney Update for 2-27-2008

Haley Chaney's Care Page at Lutheran was updated this afternoon a little after 1pm.  I will put the entire update at the bottom of the messages on the original post about the accident, but here is a little bit of good news:

It seems like every time she wakes up, we see more of the old Haley. I told you that on Sunday, Haley began forming simple words. Well, by 1:00am Monday, when she woke up from her sleep, she began talking in sentences. The words weren't sharp, but there was a full vocabulary. The speech therapist visited. She hadn't seen Haley since Friday afternoon. Haley wasn't talking or eating. Monday, the speech therapist was speechless.

Haley will be going to Parkview for her in-patient rehab on Thursday morning. It will take us some time to sort through visitation for Haley's rehab stay. Thank you SO much for your patience with regard to this. We are so blessed to have all of you. However, we will need some time to get familiar with her schedule, therapist recommendations, Haley's needs, etc.  Please call the hospital or us before you plan a visit.  We've been told that planned visitation will work best for Haley's continued progress. I know this is what we all want.

Really, really remarkable.  More comments and Haley updates from the Chaneys are available at the links mentioned up top, but continued prayer (and the occasional joyful praise) certainly remain on the menu.
