Today was another good day. For about a week now Mom’s been on the lowest ventilator assistance setting, then for the last 2 days she didn’t use the ventilator during the day, and only had its assistance at night. Today is her first 24hrs completely off the ventilator
The surgeons are pleased with the healing of Mom’s left hip socket (amputation area), and her right leg injuries show the pink of healthy tissue regrowth.
She is still receiving heavy doses of pain medications that weave her in and out of wakefulness, but that is completely fine with us, she will come back to us when the time is right.
Love you guys, mahalo for your continued pule for Mom, and please enjoy the (very small) words shared on the white board in Mom’s room:
