Even more breath!

     No sooner had I posted the last update and returned to Kari's room than I walked into to hear the respiratory therapist say he was going to skip over the two-hour wean schedule and go straight to four hours TWICE today!   She's three hours into the first session now, and will do a second four-hour period starting at 5:00 p.m. and going until 9:00 p.m.  She'll also get into a wheel chair sometime today and work on driving it herself, and tonight Rob and Allison will take her to the rec room for a movie from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Aaron leaves in half an hour for his 4:20 flight, and Shona will leave too for her 6:30 flight.  She's working on some motion with her right now just before she leaves.  Rob and Allison leave early tomorrow morning.  Please pray for us who are staying and those leaving.

PTL! Kari will be breathing on her own sooner than imagined! I hope Kari enjoyed the movie - what did she see? We will keep all of the travelers in our prayers.
God be with you all!

I will never cease to be amazed at Kari's progress, or cease to feel so very fortunate that she's making it. Man, I could've used a movie last night. Should've joined you guys!

How thankful we are to hear of the feeling in those thumbs! Kari, my co-worker, Maria, who was away on vacation all last week asked today, "How much more progress is there since last week? I know God will heal her!" We all know He is healing millimeters at a time! We're lifting up arms to praise His holy name with you! Barb Cox
