Dave Update: 11am in Dallas -- "Amazing"

It's 1100 on Saturday morning and she's doing good. She is drinking water and apple juice through a syringe.

She is actually talking a bit (amazing) and she got up and walked with assistance to the bathroom and then sat on a sofa in her room for a little while.

She's hooked to a morphine pump, which she can tap every 10 minutes, and she's been using it as I think all of the anesthetics are wearing off.

She's bruised a lot, but they said her swelling is actually less than expected. She has movement in her face and eyebrows and she can smile a little, so it looks like facial nerves are okay. She can't feel her lips yet, but that's normal I think.

The doctor just rounded, and he was pleased with how she's doing. What an amazing guy. He'll see her again this afternoon.

Right now she's sleeping. It's a nice room and nice staff.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. They are truly working, and we are so blessed to have you as our friends.
