Cautiously optimistic

23 Sep

She was wide awake and clear this morning, then started having respiratory fatigue and needed support, then had a procedure to help her lungs have less fluid pressure followed by pain and the extra support. But in the last few hours she has moved to a more simple oxygen supplement and has been much better overall. The great news is that she can now eat, albeit soft and simple, which she proceeded to do with relish.

The balance of kidneys and lungs is still an issue and your prayer for more complete healing is very much needed. But the doctors and nurses are encouraged by the significant change. She remembers yesterday but nothing before that. Humorous moment…she turned to me and said, “So today was my roughest day, wasn’t it?” The nurses, other clinicians and I looked at each other and just cracked up.

    Thank you Lord – that she has no memory of the much harder days and that there are bigger steps forward than backward! Lots of praise and continued prayer!!
