Let the Healing Begin - Again

Andrea had a trache put in her throat Monday night. She passed her breathing test this morning and they took her off the ventilator and is on a low level of oxygen. She is much more awake and we are all looking forward to get out of ICU now. Again, she has amazed some doctors who have not seen her before.
Thank you for your faithful prayers. I read the blog notes, cards and letters to her and she is so appreciative.

HI ANDREA! I'm so glad to hear you are doing better and will hopefully be out of the ICU sooner rather than later. We love you and can't wait to see you again soon. I am reminded on a daily basis how strong your character is and have no doubt you will be moving around again soon. I miss you and love you lots Andrea Kay.
