Tuesday February 24, 2009

Mom's condition took a couple of steps back today. X-rays showed that the pneumonia returned in both lungs. She has been put back under sedation to control her heart rate and blood pressure.

We have successfully initiated a transport back to the previous facility to make sure Mom's case is provided with the maximum amount of specialists and care available. Late tonight Mom will be transported back to the original hospital.

Thank you again for all your continued prayers and support!


  1. Hi guys, sorry to hear about the pneumonia being back in both lungs. I know Lisa is strong and will get through this setback. Glad she'll be with the best at the original hospital. Hang in there. I'm sure tomorrow will be a better & brighter day :)

  2. I'm sorry for the steps backwards, but it's all in the name of "the road to recovery". Tomorrow will be better. Thank you for the update.
    My love and prayers, Leslie

  3. Thank you for the updates. I know many of us check several times a day to find out the latest news. We appreciate your efforts in keeping everyone informed. Our prayer circle never stops and grows stronger everyday for Lisa! Keep fighting Lisa. Team Lisa continues to fight with you!

  4. Dear Lisa,
    I am right there with you in spirit. You are always in my thoughts and prayers all through the day. I am glad you are going back to the hospital where your doctors can watch you closely. You are the strongest person I know. If you could have visitors I would certainly be there at your side. I know God is hearing all of our prayers and knows how many of us need you and love you.

  5. Dear Lis,
    I echo what dear Sandy says. Just take the time you need to heal and get better. The doctors are awesome and as Jill said, you are right where you need to be to have the best care possible. I love you very much!
    Love you lots,

  6. Lisa,

    You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. Let me share a story with you. I took my 4 year old son JJ to the Amgen Cycling Tour in Escondido this past weekend. We went to go see Lance Armstrong who is riding again for cancer awareness. During our lunch I talked to him about several things, one of them being the reason Lance is back. I also shared with him about you and Teresa. He was so touched and inspired about both of your stories that we sat there in the car and prayed for both of you. It was truly an amazing experience.

    The Gutierrez Family are all rooting for TEAM LISA!

    With much love Juan, Lisa, JJ & Josh

  7. Prayers are a powerful source of strength. Lisa our prayers are always with you so let them give you the strength you need to recover. I hope your prayer quilt is with you so that you can always be covered by everyone's prayers. We appreciate your family's updates, as it would be unbearable not to know how you're doing. We love and miss you and continue to pray for your recovery.
