Things with my mom continue to improve but today we had a setback. She was struggling to breathe while coughing up the lung secretions (sorry, gross) and the ICU nurses had to insert a tube and put her on a respirator. The ICU staff is very positive and have said this could be a good thing for today. It will allow them to suction her lungs more effectively and then start weaning her off of the respirator tomorrow. Please pray that she will keep her strength and have strong respiration tomorrow as they scale back the respirator.
I am ready to get her off of this roller coaster!
