Great Day!

Amy had an amazing day today. They have scaled her medications back and she is responding extremely well, and they have also scaled her respirator back about 30% and her lung function is great! She was even stable enough to get a CAT scan!! I cannot stress enough to everyone how big of a deal that is.. When she went into septic shock, lactic acid flooded her bloodstream and organs causing multi organ failure. When that happened, the doctors were worried that the acid had possibly damaged her other organs. The only way to find that out is to do a CAT scan, but she was too unstable to move. So this has been a huge concern whether or not her other organs were ok, and as of last night, the doctors told us it would be DAYS until she would be well enough to be scanned. She's continuing to prove them wrong!! She's fighting!! And whats more, her scan came back clear!! No damage done to her other organs!! Her pancreas however did sustain some damage from the pancreatitis, but that was to be expected. They are also hoping to have her off dialysis soon!

Since Nancy is in town, Robert was able to go home tonight with Ava and get some rest and recharge a bit. They are both doing really well. There's still a long road ahead, but the good news today has everyone breathing a lot easier tonight.

Thank you so much to everyone who has posted thoughtful messages on the site. I will be printing them all out and make them into a little book for Amy to read when she comes out of this. Your prayers and well wishes are obviously being heard! Today was a great day!!

I survived (my son too) and you will too. Sleep in peace, recover your body and only fight when you need to, we are all with you surrounded by love and prayers. Forever my ol friend. Be well.
