Mom was taken off the ventilator during the night. She is breathing on her own and is a wake. Moms’ left hand is drawn, she can only open her eyes slightly. She is talking and she understands what we are saying. She seems to be having trouble putting words in the right place. She will stop in the middle of a sentence, but she keeps on till she finds the right word. She speaks very low and soft almost a whisper. She does not stay a wake long she is in and out. I hope today to be better for her. We can only see her a few minutes at a time. The waiting room is right outside her room. We can go to the glass window and see her. We take turns being in her room only two family members at a time are able to be there with her.
Dad asked me to tell you, we are sorry we have missed so many of you who have called. There are calls on the id caller from all over the world. We will try to call each of you back as soon as we know for sure how mom is. We are all in between the hospital and home. Dad has the phone turned down so we could sleep.
Thanks you so much. Most of all thank you for being here for my mom.
