Mom is doing well. Today she finished phase 14 of the weaning process. She spent several hours today without the assistance of the ventilator. She was just as strong at the end of the trial as she was when she started. Tomorrow the the therapists will run two tests to determine Mom's lung effeciency. If the tests go well they will attempt to leave Mom off the ventilator for the entire day. If Mom remains strong after a full day off the ventilator, the therapists will attemp to allow her to reamain off the ventilator for up to three days. If that goes well they will then remove the ventilator from the room altogether.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support!
