More Good News!

Abby had a great day today! She is continuing to improve at rates that keep the doctors shaking their heads in disbelief. They are surprised at how well her breathing is improving. The physical therapist that saw her today was also surprised at how strong Abby still is. She is a fighter! Abby remained on the ventilator and dialysis today. They finally got her sedation medications balanced better today and kept her nice and comfortable. She had a breathing treatment today and did really well with that. They are also encouraging her to cough to help remove the build-up in her lungs.

Abby is doing so well that they are going to try to get her off of dialysis tomorrow. If she does well with that, they will try to get her off of the ventilator on Saturday! Say lots of prayers for her and her parents tonight for these big steps she will be taking the next few days. Once she gets off of these machines and is able to breathe well on her own they will wake her from sedation and move her out of the ICU. They are hoping to get her off of these machines and even out of the ICU by the beginning of next week.

I can't imagine waking up and facing what this 11 year old girl is going to be confronted with. I am so grateful she has so many people who love her and will help her through this. I know she will just love all of the cards and gifts she has received. If anyone can make it through this it is definitely Abby. We are all here for you Abby!
