Again, it's been a few days since an update - but because Mom's been making quiet progress this holiday weekend. In the last few days, she's gotten more things taken out and had more freedom to move around. She's been resting well at night, as has Mark. She has also been up walking almost daily, sitting up in the chair for long stretches of time, and playing word games during the day.
The biggest step so far is the removal of the NG tube, which is uncomfortable and irritating. We weren't expecting that until later this week, but the doctor showed up and had it removed.
This week Mom will have CT scan to see how things are healing, so we ask for MAJOR prayers that there is good healing seen and NO leaks or a fistula developing.
Thank you for the messages and prayers!
Mark, Allison, Ross, RB3, and Elliot
