A tough morning, a better afternoon and evening

28 Sep

As Cathi wrote earlier, the morning was a little tough but this afternoon after another liter of fluid was removed from around her lungs, she was much more clear and less labored in her breathing.  We spent a long time talking through the various possibilities of her next week, including moving to the step-down unit on Monday.  She was 98% herself, with just a couple of misunderstandings of her situation.  That’s to be expected after a week in the intensive care unit.

So we continue to look for less need for breathing support, improved kidney function, and sustained mental clarity.  Thanks for praying her to this point.
