Day 20

Lila hasn't been feeling well the past couple of days, and today was much worse.  She has a very deep chest cough, and is extremely congested.  I kept her home from school today to get rest, and she did not sleep, but just rested.  Gosh, I hate when I know that she needs so much sleep and she doesn't get any!  On the other hand, she ate a ton today, and drank more water than I've seen her drink in a long time.  Hopefully that flushed out some of the toxins that are in her body from this virus she has.

The stem cells....right now the stem cells should be stimulating Lila's nervous system.   As they do so, their job is to elongate the axon of the damaged cells and help to lay down new neuro pathways.  Our hope is that the stimulation will help the cerebellum to correct itself and begin to show a more normal rate of growth.
