Pink and Squishy...

She is back to our little pink and squishy! Yesterday they started reducing her sedation meds by 10% she tolerated that well and today they reduced by another far so good! Still giving her a bit more nutrition in her iv, we need our girl super healthy to get her off that darn ventilator. Dr. Tieves started a little exercise with her today on the ventilator, she turned the rate down by 5% to she if she will breathe over far she is tolerating that as well. Usually she rides the ventilator and doesn't do a whole lot for herslef, but now she has a bit more strength and she is out to prove she can do it! She will contiue this exercise for a while but basically it will be down on the rate and back up to let her rest. Sounds like a lot of back and forth nonsense, but it is what will help her build her strength, so we are willing to try!

I am so glad to hear Gabi is doing better. I still continue to pray for the little one and for you too Jason, Micah and Gracie. After visiting with Jason at VBS tonight, he gave me a better idea what Gabi is going thru and I have to tell you, it just breaks my heart. I feel like Gabi is my neice! And I hold her so close to my heart. I want to make it all go away and wish she could be better now! Gosh, I really don't know what to say to make it all better for you other than say, I am so sorry Gabi has taken so long to heal. It has been a long month for you.
We all send our comments to you and some us visited you at the beginning and now we are too busy with our own lives to take time out and spend it with you. I am guilty of this as well. Hey, everyone out there......let's all be there for Jason and Micah and go visit them at the hospital and show them our support! Little Gabi needs each and everyone of us to be there for her. She knows we are praying for her, but she needs to hear our voices to. So, I am challenging each and everyone of you to take the extra time and go see Gabi. I am going to see my little angel next week. We love you guys!
