Here's Lilit sitting up with just a little support and practicing moving her arms up and down with two physical therapists:
Lilit was eating reasonably well again today and it became obvious that she doesn't like the hospital food when she happily ate some salad, chicken and hummus from a nearby restaurant and later homemade chicken soup courtesy of Naira. Oh, and let's not forget the bag of Skittles she shared with Ella.
Siranoush read Lilit the book from Ella's classmates.
Shortly after the music therapist left, Lilit was transferred out of PICU back to her original room on the fifth floor. She was very happy to be there again and see the nurses who had taken such good care of her prior to the surgery.
Even though there were tears when Ella and Lilit had to say their goodbyes this evening...
... it's been a blessing to see this gorgeous smile again:
