We had 2 small good news events today which of course thrilled us. The first is that they have been able to reduce the oxygen coming through her ventilator to 45% and 2nd, it looks like the pneumonia is starting to clear up a bit with the huge amounts of antibiotics they have her on. They tried to see if she could breathe on her own this morning, and while she was doing pretty good with that, once they stopped the sedative to try and wake her up she started to choke and thrash around too much so they had to sedate her again. Apparently, it is a very slow process to get someone off the breathing tube because you need to be awake for certain tests and a lot of people coming out of sedation will panic, try to take the tube out, etc. They will try to wake her up again in the morning.
Because of all the lung problems, the reason why she landed in ICU in the first place still hasn’t been addressed. Tomorrow morning they are doing another CT scan of her neck and comparing it to the one they did on Monday. Hopefully we can get some answers about that tomorrow.
In the meantime, everything else is the same. We want to thank you all for your prayers, messages and support. Dad is spending the evening with the boys and I will sleep here with her and am planning on reading all the messages since things will be quieter.
