Abby had a great day today. They switched her ventilator settings from CMV to MMV - MMV is the setting that Abby is doing most of the work with support if she needs it. This is a huge step and she is doing well. They also lowered her dialysis concentration and she is peeing more. The next steps regarding her chest is to start taking the links (one or two at a time) the end of next week and start slowly closing her chest. We are also very hopeful that she will be off the ventilator next week.
I wanted to especially make sure that I thank my co-workers at WorkSource who organized a Bunco fundraiser last Friday. Greg and I are so fortunate to have such caring and supportive employers.
On a personal note, a friend's son in Pennsylvania, Derek, has recentley been diagnosed with cancer. Since your prayers have been essential and so helpful for Abby and her progress, please include him and his family in your prayers.
Lots of love.
