No Longer Persistent Vegetative Status!
We have HUGE news! Our neurologist has confirmed what we've believed for awhile. Selah is no longer diagnosed as being in a Persistent Vegetative Status (PVS)! She has been UPgraded to Minimally Conscious(MC)! This is a great big deal as many children like Selah do not progress forward. It is slow but she is very aware of her surrounding and we believe she recognizes people.
She follows people with her eyes and turns her head to her name most of the time. She watches tv. she lets us know if she dislikes something with a scowl and tears too. there is no doubt if she dislikes things-it is quite clear.
The neurologist was quite pleased with her progress as well as her overall health.
We were told (ie hit over the head) time and time again that she would never ever come out of the coma and have any other diagnosis. Of course she may never progress any further given her age and other factors but she has come a long way.
We are grateful to God and for your many prayers!
Please still pray for Angela ( my last blog) that a family will step forward in the next few days for her!!!!!
