Another great day 1-11-06

Today was definitely a great day for Andrea. She breathed on her own all day (30% O2) and was able to talk through a voice box. There was not a fever all day (98.6) and late in the day she convinced the doctors to allow her to eat jello, broth, apple juice, and water. This was after they shut down the tube feed because her stomach wasn't tolerating the liquid food. She had begged for just a huge glass of water for the last two day. No food or water for 49 days. Can you blame her? Jesus only fasted for 40 days. Andrea was so happy to have food and water for the first time. Let's pray that her stomach jump starts and she is able to tolerate real food.

The other great thing that happened today was that the order was issued for Andrea to be moved the PCU (ICU step down unit). Once a private room becomes available she will be moved. There they have one nurse to every four patients. Andrea is excited about the move. Maybe she will move tomorrow. Thank you everyone for all the cards. Andrea really enjoys to hear from all of you. New update coming tomorrow.

Andrea, I've started praying for a real meal (however -in God's time only) how about steak, gravy, potatoes, salad & a large glass of iced tea with dessert / whatever you want!!!! You are on your way and you'll get there before you know it....and it will all work out in His time for your very best. God loves you so much! It is absolutely beautiful to witness the awesome powerful loving personal relationship you and your family are experiencing with Him during this time. He never allows more than we can handle. Continuing to pray for you each day for complete healing in the name of Jesus.
