Just wanted to let you know that I have also set up caring bridge site for Holli. The web address is www.caringbridge.org/visit/hollihawthorne . I will try to keep this site updated along with this blog.

Holli has had a good week except for a brief episode Monday of an elevated temperture. The urine culture came back negative and she has not had any more problems. Therapy has tilted her twice this week and she tolerated it fine. They only got her up to a 40 degree angle but will try to tilt her up more next week. She is moving her left arm more and more but still has not talked. She smacks her lips and yawns really big at times. She enjoys watching tv, especially the arts station.

Heather had it arranged for me to have 3 days at home this week. Holli's father, Dick and his family, Karen and Penny, Heather and my good friend, Meg helped stay with Holli those three days. It was nice being able to get some rest and errands taken care of which I am unable to do when I need to be here with Holli. I will be with her the rest of the week. The therapist said they thought that Holli missed me....I know I missed being out here with her and that I called alot checking on her.... thanks guys for putting up with me!

We have had alot of rain this week....4 inches so far and they are calling for possible rain this weekend. I missed seeing the rain in San Francisco but I have made up for it now! I am ready for sunshine.

Looking forward to seeing my sister, Deree, from Starkville, Ms this weekend. Her son plays football for Miss State and they play Vanderbilt here tomorrow night.

I also want to wish my Mom a very, very Happy 83rd Birthday tomorrow. Hope you have a great day! I love you.

Hey Diane,

I'm glad that you set up the caringbridge site. It's a really great thing.

I have another friend with a brain injury--she is a southern girl as well and was her in LA when an undiagnosed AVM ruptured in her brain stem. She had a 6 month old at the time, but like you, her family really rallied around her and she is on the mend. Her injury happened about a year and a half ago, but if you want to read on her story, you can check out www.caringbridge.org/visit/katherinewolf. Katherine is able to check all of her sites and her facebook, so when Holli was injured, I told Kat all about her. I know that she has included her in her prayers. Katherine's mom also has a blog that she updates and it is a wonderful source of inspiration--http://katherinewolf.blogspot.com. I am so glad that you and Holli are back in Tennessee. When I come in for Christmas, I will make sure I come by for a visit (if your schedule's allow it).

You all are always in my thoughts and prayers,

Desiree Hall

Hi Diane, we haven't met yet but hopefully we will soon :)

I know Holli(s) from Burning Man. I'm trying to make a plan to come visit, probably around the end of the month. Hopefully Hollis' friends Kevin and Nicole (Not-It) will be coming out from Louisville too.

I'm glad to hear she's doing well! She's a strong lady. Can't wait to see you both.
