Sunday February 8, 2009

Mom had a very good night and day. She is showing signs of improvement after beginning the steroid treatment. Her heart rate has dropped into the normal range. She is able to maintain blood pressure with minimal amounts of medication. She is able maintain good blood oxygen levels with decreased percentage of oxygen output from ventilator.

Mom is still under sedation. Her chest x-ray remains the same from yesterday. We hope to see continued progress as a result of the steroid treatment.

Keep up the prayers!

    We are so glad to hear that you are having a better day and having to rely less and less on the medication and the ventilator. It sounds like there are improvements everyday. We would love to visit you anytime it is allowed. Please let us know if there is anything we can do or bring to the hospital.
    Love, Jen, Ryan, Jackie and Louie.
