(Great) Grandma Update

Grandma is still in the ICU and they are starting to wean her off of her ventilator. Today they had her off the ventilator for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours and she did ok. It is picking up when she can't. They are also not sedating her as heavily as she had been so today she was able to follow people around the room with her eyes and seems to recognize her family. She had movement in her right foot yesterday and then today had a little movement in her right knee.

My mom, her brothers, and their spouses have been taking turns going down to stay with Grandma during visiting hours. A few from my generation have been in to see her as well. I've heard the staff are tightening up a bit on visitors to her room because there are just so many of us. They are only allowing 2 visitors at a time in her room and the others have to wait in the waiting room, not in the hallway. Apparently, some of the other patients (or families) have complained because there were so many people there to see her. Sorry about that! She just has a big family!

I'll try to keep you posted when I learn something new. Please keep the prayers coming for Grandma and her kids.
