Friday Night 5-29-09

Had a good visit with the doc late Fri night. He reaffirmed how well all is progressing. He even said they may move her from the oscillating breathing machine to the conventional breathing machine Sat. Because of the weakness of her lungs, the oscillating machine gently puffs air into Sara at regular intervals. A very short puff at a time. This is a good move.

He also said he might try and do the spinal tap in a few days because she is going better. Again, that will tell him if the bacterial infection is in the brain and if they need to attack it differently. Regardless, she will be on antibiotics for at least 14 days.

Jennifer still has that beta strep infection herself, she started an antibiotic today. Pray for that to work. She is walking faster and getting stronger everyday and doing more. I actually had to make her stop doing laundry this morning. Moms - you are amazing. God gives you all something that he doesn't give dads.

We are going to head up there in a bit. Both grandparents have seen her Fri pm and Sat am, and they both are noticing more movement and good changes. I can tell you all enough how much the calls, emails, and comments have meant to us. Thx!
