One more day!

Another morning for my sister, her kids are all here for now, this is the latest on her Caring Bridge page written by her youngest daughter Kim.

"Well the day was hard, but she is sedated now and resting again for one more night. They took her out of the coma this morning so we could talk with her. She couldnt talk, but she could write a little and tried sign language to us. We ended up getting an translator of sign in and also a Dr was with us through it all. Very helpful. Mom was still a sassafras, told the interp that he was cute and wanted to be alone with him ;) . She was very head strong about going off the ventilator today but we were able to get through to her that if that happened, she can not go back on. The dr's really want us to give one more day since her oxygen levels had improved a little. They did try some breathing exercise with no success. So tonight she rests, we will see what tomorrow brings. We really feel better about the outcome after our day with her. Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. We are hanging together and hoping for the best. Love to all, Kimmy.."

It is just a waiting game for now, her mind is sharp as a tack but her lungs are shot..At least she is able to make a decision so her kids won't have to do it.

Today would have been our dads 104 birthday, he died from cancer when he was 56.

I too am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers ... I've been following the CB site -- your sister is a hoot! (and determined, and headstrong and knows what she wants)
