We arrived back at home Monday night, at about 9 PM. It took over 30 hours of continuous travel to get back from Delhi! Talk about exhausting.
We were greeted by a small welcoming committee at the arrival gate, when we walked through the doors of the airport terminal. It was nice to see some familiar faces. Thank you Larry, Jim, Sandra, Matt, Katie, and Sarah!
You will all be happy to know that Kimberly continues to improve. There are so many things she can do now, that were very difficult or not possible before the procedure.
Her vision has improved. She reports no "grey fog" in her right eye, and that her contact lenses seem too strong of a prescription.
Her walking is better. Last week she would have required a cane for nearly every outing. It's been sitting at the front door, without use since we came back. She can do the "sobriety test" of heel-toe and not lose her balance.
Her wakefulness has increased. We are still overcoming major jet lag, and the time zone change, but she seems to be less fatigued.
She has sensation in her feet, that she had forgotten about. Her toes can feel other toes, and her toes can feel the floor.
She can drink fluids and not choke halfway through. She never even realized this was a problem before.
I am sure there is more. And, I am sure she will notice more over the coming days and months.
It seems fitting that she was interviewed today by our local TV station, regarding the "super bug" story that is circulating in the media. She was the lead story!
