Yesterday Andrea was transferred from ICU to PCU. She was really excited about moving and we are so proud of her. The nurses in ICU that have got to know Andrea were so happy for her and cheered her on. She was able to eat three small meals (ice tea, jello, broth, boost, and fruit) yesterday, but couldn't hold all of it down by the end of the day. Pray that her stomach gets to feeling better and that she can begin holding her food down. I figure when you don't have food for 50 days it is probably pretty hard to hold it down.
Her temp has remained down and we pray for this to continue. Her kidneys continue to improve everyday and she is not receiving dialysis. The doctors have ordered blood tests every other day instead of every day. She looked much less jaundice yesterday. Today she will down-size her trachea and the doctors are talking about removing the tube soon. The main thing we need to pray for is for Andrea to be able to hold her food down and process it. This would give her move energy and provide the nourishment that her body needs.
Thanks for all the support and talk to everyone soon. God Bless.
