It is me again and I type with a happy heart! Ben has been opening his eyes from time to time this morning! He gets very agitated when Respiratory Therapy treats him but it is good for him!! His trach and feeding tube that were put in yesterday are doing well. He has been fully breathing on his own this morning which is another answer to prayer. He did spike a low tepm over the night and they are going to culture some stuff today.....but his temp has been stable all morning.
I am doing well. Stomach incision is still tender but it is healing nicely. My arm rarely hurts anymore, just an occasional throb here and there. The splint/cast they have me in is always in my way but I have an appointment Mon to hopefully get a shorter one. My appetite is growing and so I am not having as much food shoved in my face by loved ones to get me to eat!
Thank you again for all your prayers and support......and please keep praying for us!
I get internet and cable (yes, we are finally stepping up in the world) on Monday so hopefully I can get online more often!

Love you all!

Katie
