I talked to Janis tonight and she said that Emily worked hard all day. They put the T-bar on her trach twice today and Janis said you can tell that it's hard work. But Emily crossed the finish line both times!
Get this....she had clear liquids today! I had no idea she would be eating this soon. But Janis said she had jello, juices and lots of drinks. They're thinking this will help the bile situation. Emily has also told them she doesn't want anymore medicines that make her feel weird.
Jeff & Kim (brother & sister-in-law) have been there all afternoon and evening visiting. So that's been a breath of fresh air for Janis & Emily.
They hope to have Emily in a regular room next week. But of course, she has to be off of the ventilator--and she's going through the steps of getting off. The fact that she's working so hard is a great sign that it will happen.
Janis said a nurse indicated that after she is ready for rehab, it's a possibility that she could be moved to Greenville----which would certainly help Luke. Let's pray that God opens this door!
Speaking of Luke, he and his brother have been working on a surprise (shhhh....) for Emily for when she gets home. They've installed---or are installing---a Jacuzzi tub! When I called Luke, they were trying to figure out the faucet situation. Emily is going to be so pleased!!
OH! And Luke is preaching at his church tomorrow! YEA!
Thank you for praying Emily through this day---it certainly did help!
