Abby is progressing well, they lowered her vent settings so that she is breathing more on her own and changed her dressing. Nana was able to see her "open chest" this morning when they changed her dressing. The PA, Jason is very happy with her progress and how she is healing. He is very optimistic that we will be able to close her chest on Friday, albeit not in the traditional manner - big surprise :). If they are not able to close her they will definitely close her the following week. Abby had physical and occupational therapy today. We also read out of Abby's new book, 20th Century Treasury of Children's stories - if you are a parent it is a must have. I returned back to work part-time yesterday and it is going well, the overwhelming support for Abbym Greg and I is a blessing.
