1:30 PM

19 Sep

The anesthesia medication has been stopped and she is now starting to rouse a bit. The hope is that she can be taken off the ventilator this afternoon. However, her lungs are so full (this is expected) that she may need a bit more time on the vent as support. Her kidneys are consistently improving output but the numbers are expected to climb due to a number of factors. I spoke with the nephrologist this morning and he’s optimistic that longer term this shouldn’t be a problem.
It is highly unlikely that she will remember anything from today or tomorrow. That will be a very good thing since her big concern was the ventilator and all that it entails.
Thanks for all of your expressions of support.

    Please give your mom a hug for me when she awakens, and remind her that Don and I are praying. We surely appreciate the updates!

    Happy to hear she won’t remember the ventilator part of this. Even happier to have some positive news. I am happier still that you are there with her; that is good medicine for her. My love to you both.
