Wednesday March 11, 2009

Mom had another good day today. She has now completed 11 of 19 stages of weaning off the ventilator. Mom was able to sit up a couple of times today. She has continued working with the Physical and Occupational Therapists daily. Today Mom's oxygen level was lowered down to 21%. This is the same percent of oxygen that we breathe without the asssistance of a ventilator.

Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers!

  4. Hi Lisa,
    Once again you are proving how amazing you are and what strength you have. You are moving along at such a fast rate now. I am happy to hear that you are needing less and less help to breathe. Pretty soon you will be going up and down the halls of the facility. My thoughts are with you all the time.
