Yesterday was exciting when Vanessa was wakened from the coma for a brief time. As I added to yesterday's post, she was able to nod that she understood where she was and that she was in a lot of pain. She woke on her own later in the day, as well.
We really look forward to more news when the family gathers with many friends and us at LM's tomorrow night. We do know that the doctors plan to begin repair surgeries on Friday. First will be to wire her jaw as it is broken in numerous places.
In the meantime, John is working very hard on plans for a fundraising concert to be held in a few months, and Vanessa's aunt has started a Facebook page where more news will be available. The page is called V's Angels, if anyone is interested. The photo on the page is of Vanessa and really captures her beautiful smile.
We are all very grateful for all your love, caring and prayers. We can feel the energy and support.
Meanwhile Ms G is doing her best to keep us "light" and smiling. She'll be here tomorrow to see you!
