Lisa's restful day yesterday continued through the night and into this morning. She slept through the night and all vitals were stable though to this afternoon. It was good that she had the opportunity to build her strength, because she needed all of it by the end of the day. Late this afternoon, her right lung collapsed. They are not sure of the cause, but her respiration and heart rate started speeding up, over-inflated the lung and caused the collapse. Fortunately, the Pulmonary Dr. was here when it happened and was able to immediately perform a procedure to relieve the excess air and pull off fluids. He was successful in restoring her lung function quickly. Lisa is sedated and sleeping quietly and all off her vitals are stable at this time.
Please continue to keep Lisa in your prayers as she continues to face each of these new obstacles with courage, faith and a strength that is beyond my ability to describe. We appreciate your unwavering love and support.
Jim, Josh and Melissa.
