No More Machines!

Prayers continue to be answered and Abby is continuing to make huge steps. They took her off of the ventilator this morning so she is breathing all on her own now! It is definitely labored breathing with lots of coughing but she is progressing so well. She has also been able to stay off of dialysis.

They have been slowly reducing all the sedation medications today. She has been in and out of it all day long and is really struggling to understand what is going on. Mike said her first words were, "Let's go home." As far as Abby knows it is February 12th (last Saturday) at Mercy Gilbert hospital. Really pray for her and her parents tonight. It is going to be a really challenging few days for all of them. She is certainly headed in the right direction though. I can't wait to go and talk to you Abby!

Hang in there Abby! I know its going to be just miserable for awhile but you can do it!
