Talk of leaving ICU

Progress has been slow, but steady. Andrea has been in a chair, sitting up and trying to communicate as best as she can with a trache. I have to admit it is hard to try to read her lips because everyone knows how Andrea like to talk, and she goes too fast for us sometimes. They will change the trache to one that is easier for her to talk, and we are just waiting for them to do that, and then maybe they will release her to a regular room so we can get physical therapy and get back home. That week home was just soooo good, and Andrea wants to be there so much.
Thank you for your faithful prayers. They really, really do mean so much to Andrea and us, too.

So glad to get the update. Slow progress is good -- still progress. Andrea, you are amazing and I admire your strength and fortitude. I pray for you to be back at your home soon. You are just a beacon to all. You and your family have been through so much, but you are still so steadfast in your faith and your courage. God bless you all.

Love, Carolyn

No matter where in the world we find ourselves, we're always praying for your complete recovery and for you to be able to enjoy being at home once again.

Hope to be able to come by for a visit before returning to KL as I'd love to tell you in person how in awe we are of your positive spirit and strong courage.
Hang in there and we hope tomorrow is waaay better than today.
With love always,
Sam and Tracey
