December 9, 2010

According to the nurse early this morning, Mom had a very good night. Her blood pressure was finally stable in comparison to the lows that we have been seeing for the past few days. She is set for surgery today to cover the section of her right arm that had been covered in cadaver skin last week and was taken off. The nurse also reported that she was trying to move around quite a bit more on her own which, I have to say, is inspiring. I am sure that she would love to jump up and run out of the hospital at this point.

She must know that all of her kids are wishing and praying for a miracle this Christmas.

  5. I saw a miracle when when sister and her husband were healed from a terrible plane crash 2 years ago. I know God answers prayers and through faith, your family can be healed as well. We pray for them.

  19. also here from NieNie..
    sending you as much positive energy as humanly possible... family strength and support means everything at times like these, and your mother clearly has that. . . your father is a hero for saving her life, and you are a hero for sharing her story and helping her recover.

    is there an address where we may send a card to your family/mother?

  34. Although you may not be able to see it now, there is good that comes of every tragedy-even if it's just realizing how many wonderful, caring strangers there are out there pulling for you and praying for you or passing on the hope and empowerment one day like Nie to a fellow burn victim. I wish you much strength and resilence. Hope one day you can see the glimmers of good amongst all the sadness and struggle.
