    I did...and this morning I had no problem...I’m afraid to put her in water...she can’t hold her head up much.

    Still the same, no physical change. Only difference is she is talking again. She had been pretty silent the last 2 days.

    Gotta give to her credit for hanging in there. And talking doesn’t that sound like improvement maybe it means pain is subsiding?
