Saturday March 14, 2009

Mom is still doing well. She remains off the ventilator with no plans to put her back on. Today Mom was able to talk for the first time in over a month. They used a speaking valve over the trache to allow her to speak.

Thank you all again for your continued prayers and support!


  1. That is so exciting. What did she say? It must have been a sweet sound! Wonderful! Lots of love, Leslie

  2. Hi Lisa,
    I am so happy to hear that you are off the ventilator and continue to breathe on your own. This is such wonderful news. It must have been a great moment for all of you when you were able to talk to your family today. We are all grateful to them for keeping us updated throughout all of this. Our hearts and thoughts are always with you. Pretty soon you will be walking around on your own. I can't wait for that day to come.
    Love and prayers,
    Sandy Saldano
