I Want My Girl Back

Today was not a good day.  Abby's having some concerning neurological issues.  While I was told many times that it was all just withdrawal, today they decided maybe it wasn't.  We met with lots of doctors today, including the neurology team.  They were concerned enough to want to check for a stroke or seizures, so they did a ct scan and an eeg.  The ct came back ok but we don't know about the eeg.  

I miss my girl.  I think she's in there, but she seems very far away.  She stares into space, won't usually respond to us, hasn't said anything or really tried to communicate much at all (we have been trying a lot of methods!!), has very tight arms, tremors often, and moves her fingers constantly.  Every movement is very slow and deliberate--she sometimes looks at her hands like she can't figure out why they aren't working.

And needless to say, I am a wreck.  Matt came up when the doctors started being concerned today, but he went home a little while ago.  I just keep looking at old pictures and videos on my phone of what Abby was...and just praying we get her back....

Please pray for her and for us.  She is so brave and is working so hard.  I just want my girl back!
