The surgery went well – it was actually a bit of a nonevent. She was gone for an hour, and when she came back she seemed to be as alert as she was when she left. All afternoon she continued to answer questions and follow us with her eyes, though it seemed like she couldn’t quite get comfortable. I suppose that’s a good thing, because she’s got more awareness with her body, but it was little frustrating for Bo and I because we never could quite figure out what was making her uncomfortable.
We have not seen a doctor since this morning, so perhaps we’ll have news about the ventilator tomorrow. Based on her movements today, I’m pretty sure she’s ready to get rid of that! All her vitals are good, and the swelling in her face and neck seem to have gone down a little tonight. She’s been sleeping pretty well since around 6pm or so – I hope she continues sleeping like this throughout the night so that she can get some good rest after so much movement today.

It is such a relief to know that she is progressing in the right direction. I know that sometimes the emotional rollercoaster ya’ll have been on is very draining. It can be very overwhelming to take in all of this new information. Please know that I am here if you have any questions or just need to talk.
Keep it going Debbie – you are strong and you are going to beat this!! You have lots and lots of cheerleaders – we all love you!
Debbie, it is so heart warming hearing of your progression every day! You must know that we miss you and anticipate your rapid healing. I am so thankful that your family generously shares with us daily. What a wonderful family you have.
Debbie et al: With all you have been through in the past, I know you will come out of this smelling like the “rose” that you are. You have many angels hovering around. Love you. Pam Gordon
We are continuing to pray for Debbie, you and family. Glad to hear Debbie is making progress. Hope she will continue to make big steps in improving.
