PRAISE THE LORD!!!

Wow, I was too nervous to post yesterday, for fear that she might just be having a "good" day, but it seems that Mom has had what they call here in ICU a "turn-around day". She wants to go home and is smiling and alert. She is discovering how long she has been here and how very sick she was - and she can't believe it. She still can't talk because of the trach - they are doing some speech therapy today and she can whisper right now with a special valve on the trach tube. She weaned off the vent for 11 hours yesterday - makes me chuckle now that I was excited about 35 minutes last week!!

I am amazed that this is the same woman - I am thanking and praising God for answering our prayers and the prayers of so many - we have heard from friends and relatives all over the country who are praying for her! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Please pray now for her to continue to gain strength and to have patience as she is not headed home like she wants, but to a rehab hospital, to wean her more off the vent and to help her re-gain physical strength. They are thinking she will be transferred as early as tomorrow! Wow.
