In case you wondered what our last month has been like, here is Eliana putting an ice pack on her neck -- just like Grandma. My mom was using ice packs so constantly that Eliana started asking for one for Grandma and one for "Ana". She loves wrapping and unwrapping the ice pack, talking about how cold it is, and sitting on her little couch and icing her neck just like Grandma. Perhaps in this case imitation isn't so much flattery as it is a heartfelt attempt to connect with Grandma in the midst of a situation far more difficult than her almost-2-year-old brain can understand.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers for my mom. She is slowly doing better, although we'd still love your prayers for her complete healing.
