Friday February 6, 2009

Although Mom had a restful night, she had a difficult morning. She experienced some respiratory setbacks, but now is stable again and sedated.

As a result of the infection, fluid has continued to build in her lungs. She is currently under the care of multiple specialists, including pulmonary, cardiac, infectious disease, and neurology. The specialists are still working on trying to determine the source of the infection in order to administer the best course of treatment. She is receiving the best of care and the hospital staff has continued to be helpful and informative through the whole process.

Although many of you have expressed your wishes to be here for us, mom is still in ICU and is limited to only immediate family member as visitors. Dad, Melissa, and Myself(Josh) are here pretty much around the clock.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and thoughts! Thanks for all of your support. Our family is very lucky to have the extended network of support that all of our family and friends provide!
