It’s been a tough week for Deb — and Andy and me too. Saturday morning Deb’s breathing tube was removed and she is completely off the ventilator and breathing on her own. However she is still experiencing labored breathing and coughing, and remains in ICU. Deb has considerable pain and discomfort from her breathing difficulties and is on medications to help ease the pain, but they also keep her somewhat sedated. We are encouraged that Deb’s white blood counts and hemoglobin have been rising daily. Her platelets are lagging behind, but they are usually the last to recover. We will be closely watching Deb’s blood counts for continued recovery over the next week.
Thank you everyone for your continued prayers and love. The past week has been really difficult for all of us.
