Thursday February 12, 2009

Small improvement in chest x-rays today. Vitals continue to remain stable. Mom was able to maintain lower oxygen levels throughout the night. We interpret this as a step in the right direction. So far today remains relatively quiet. They were able to lower the oxygen level again this morning.

Thank you again for your continued prayers and support!


  1. Dearest Lisa and Family,
    What positive news! Each step in the right direction shortens the length of the road.
    Keep fighting, Lisa--we're with you!
    Love from Monica
