Friday February 13, 2009

Mom made progress again today. Her oxygen level is down to 50%. Her chest x ray showed slight improvement today. For part of the afternoon she was alert and responsive. Although we are excited to see the progress, the Dr. reminded us that this is a journey of very small steps.

Thank you again for all of your support and prayers!


  1. That's great news! You are such the fighter! Keep up the good fight, we miss you at Carver but we are keeping things going... A little better each day gets you closer to getting better. Rest and relax and know that Carver is doing just fine! You are in my thoughts and prayers :)
