Still praying for StephSteph got her trach and PEG today -- praise God, it all went well! This is a goal we've been waiting and praying for! Obviously she still has a long way to go, but I feel like getting the tube out of her mouth will make a huge difference in her recovery. (In case you're wondering, she's still on the ventilator; it just hooks into her neck instead of through her mouth.) Before the procedure, she was coming off of sedation a little, just enough to express a little discomfort when they were swabbing her mouth. And when her nurse and I were talking about her, she gave us a little "yawn". Her kidneys and lungs are still in bad shape, but at least God is giving us signs that she's on the right path. She will still be sedated for a while so she can rest up and heal. Maybe start to wake her on Sunday (God willing).
Continuing to pray and praise God for His grace and healing power!
God willing she'll be well soon
we can only hope and pray
