Sarah was awake for a while this evening. For about 90 minutes she asked me to just tell her about my day and wrote to ask about other news that came up. She was thrilled to be able to have ice chips and told me she was starving. We joked a bunch and caught up on things I knew she would want to know. She smiled many, many times because I tell stupid jokes- but it was almost like a normal visit with my sister (and tens of thousands of dollars of medical equipment.) She looked a bit tired so I helped her get comfortable and she went to sleep. It was fantastic to watch.
