Britney Smiled

I was visiting Britney today and asked her to blink three times in a row if she could hear me. She did and I got really excited and told her Dad who missed it and then she smiled at us. We told her nurse and her nurse said she had done the same thing for her earlier today.

Hi everyone,
I posted some pictures and videos of the kids on our family web site. I just figured out Britney's password. I'll get more up there soon. Thanks for all your comments. We miss all of you.

Britney Moved

Hi everyone,
Britney moved yesterday to Malley skilled nursing and rehab center. It's at 401 Malley Dr
Northglenn, CO 80233. Sorry for the long time between posts. There have not been many changes but Britney seems to be slightly more aware as time progresses. She looks at us when we talk to her a lot of times. She is more peaceful and relaxed the past few months. It is frustrating to not have much progress. That is why we haven't posted anything. Thank you all for asking about her and how she is doing. Your support mean so much, and is very very appreciated. Britney moved last night. Her social security disability and long term care was approved and she was sent to the first facility that accepted her. It is ok but we are trying to find one that is closer and better. There was nothing we could do about it. The places we had looked at before that we liked were full and we didn't have time to find a new place before she had to be moved. In the mean time Britney will need a lot of people to visit her because it is much farther from home and close family won't be able to come as often. Casey and Jana have seen Britney make some improvements recently that are encouraging and will post their stories soon. I didn't want to tell them second hand. Even though progress is slow she is improving. I don't know what her future will be but we thank you for all of your continued support.
