Day 13...December 25, 2014 - Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!!
We finally got to see Morgan. When we walked in I first saw Isabella and then Margo. Seriously the French government need to give them a raise. They are so kind and sweet with Morgan. Her eyes are open much more and she knows what is going on. I think this is one of the harder days because watching her realize things makes her sad and breaks my heart. We tell her about the accident and you can tell she is sad. I don't know if she really gets it. She is still heavily medicated but she acts like she is listening. She is also in a lot of pain with her hip. They give her morphine which I think confuses her more but then she is out. They are waiting for her to swallow and then they will take the vent out. Hopefully tomorrow or Thursday. I think once that thing is out of her mouth she will be much happier. She is coming along. When they fly her to salt lake they will take her right to IMC. She will have therapy I am sure for a while and my guess is she will have hip surgery too. She also has a bone that is broken in her left ear, so we will see what we need to do about that. And also her collar bone. Baby steps I guess. Merry Christmas to you all. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas Day 12/25
Merry Christmas everyone!! Last night after leaving the hospital the President Sinjoux came and picked us up for his family Christmas party at the mission home. They get released the end of June and decided to have there last Christmas there with their extended family. There were probably about 50 of them. What a beautiful family. The kids are darling and our checks were kissed more times then I can count:) President Sinjoux and his nephew gave a spiritual thought and then they sang my favorite Christmas song "Angels we have heard on high" I wanted to ask them to sing it again but I didn't want to embarrass myself. We then went to eat. Oh my, we just tried everything. We had mussels, oysters (in the prettiest shells) duck, duck liver, veal, some form of poi in coconut milk, and some other stuff. I say other stuff because when I said "this is good, what is it!" And the response was duck liver, I stopped asking. they are so kind and so generous. I will take some of their Christmas traditions and use them with our family. We got back to the hotel at 12:00...3:00am in Utah and then the kids were our wake up call. Troy and I said, I bet grams and pops wake them up early. And they did!:) ha ha. We were able to Facetime them while they opened gifts. We have great kids. It was awesome to see their smiles and laughter. Thank you momo, and pops!! I will never be able to tell you how much i am grateful for you! Troy and I went back to bed and then went for a walk and had our breakfast, pineapple cut open with a plastic spoon:) We can't wait to get back to Morgan!! Ever second they let us be there we are there. Merry Christmas!! We wish we were there but we will be soon. I hope we get there and that vent is out. That would be a great Christmas gift.

We arrived at the hospital at 12:50 and people were already there to see her. They come and they sing and she sleeps. She is much more calm today. She isn't anymore alert then yesterday. But the nurses and doctor said she has been up all morning moving around. She has her leg in traction and has broke out of it five times this morning. While a couple sisters were singing to her, she broke free again and slept peacefully ever since. The nurse just came in to take the probe off her brain. I guess that's the right lingo. What that means is her pressure is doing so well there is no need to monitor it anymore. And she saw the state of the traction and said in her cute French voice "oh, Morgan" Troy had a call from the transport team today. It surprised us a bit because we didn't think they would be working on it until tomorrow because of Christmas. So, the ball is rolling. That's all for now.
