Updates on My Parents - May 10th, 2016

Updates from May 10th:

23 hrs ·

We are all pretty tired, but I want to give you an update on how things are going.

Mom breathed on her own last night, and got her tubes out and off her sedative today. She's talking a little, but because she had them in so long it'll take a bit to get back to normal. She's already started therapy and was able to sit herself up. She's doing well, just worn out.

After a long night of fighting with me and trying to "break out" of his room, Dad started therapy as well and got in a chair. He's doing really well. Not much of a change on him.. Just improving and getting stronger.

I'll share a dialogue with you from right after mom got awake and got her tubes out:

*in mom's room*

Me: I heard Dad is up in a chair.

Surgeon: Yeah, man. He's a stud.

RN: You hear that Marcy? You married a stud 28 years ago. You're not too shabby yourself.

Mom: *smile*

Me: You're a stud too mom

RN: Y'all must have a stud farm over in Kentucky

Mom: *coughing and laughing hard*

.... Later with Dad....

Me: Dr. Kaufman called you a stud. *recounts story*

Dad: Well... There you go. You heard it from "the man."

Laughter, next to prayer and probably a few pain meds, is the best medicine.
God is good and he and all of you are blessing us! Thank you!

Being in the valley with God is better than being on the mountain top without Him.

I slept in dad's room again. We had a long night. He's been in a lot of pain. He's doing a little better right now. Mom was weaned off the ventilator last night. Keep praying! God is with us!
