Yesterday we were able to take the sacrament while being here at the hospital. They also shared a thought with us before they left. It was very touching.
"We long to be close to the Lord, for we know that He loves each of us and desires to encircle us 'eternally in the arms of his love' (2 Nephi 1:15). His touch can heal ailments spiritual, emotional, or physical."

Last night went great. Kiersten was singing to us and dancing with her arms. She was using the magic wand that Nick bought for her, as her microphone. She had us rolling with laughter. We had tears rolling down our faces. Some of her friends had to walk out because they were laughing so hard. They told us the nurses were out there laughing as well. It was so great to see her moving around and again being so positive. She said it was because she had her party crew with her.
Kiersten is doing well today. It is only morning and she has already walked once. They found a little fluid in her lungs, but the Doctor said having her walk will help flush the fluid out of her lungs.
Her eyes were even wide open for the first time. She has also started eating solid foods.
