Twent-four hours of goodness

28 Sep

My mom has been off bi-pap since yesterday afternoon and has been breathing much better since the last fluid was taken from around her lungs. She was able to walk to the door of her room and back…a first since surgery. It wiped her out but it is a step in the right direction. Her mind is clear now, and although she tires easily, it is so good to have her back with us.
The goal is to move her from the intensive care unit to a step-down unit early next week. Then it’s a matter of getting her mobile again so she can return home. We are asking the Father for ongoing improvement in her kidneys and lungs as well as her strength.

    Love the good news!! Will continue to pray!! We love you so much Marian!! Thanks Brian and Cathi for keeping the updates coming!! Today Steve and I ate in Rio do Sul. The floodwaters have receded and the church has cleaned as much as they can for now, more to come in the next few days until everything dries. This time was not as difficult as last time. Glad we can be here today to encourage them — Steve will preach tonight, to give Johny a break. Blessings to all of you!!
