Quick Update

This is Stephanie again. We were able to see mom for a while tonight. She is in the surgical ICU. She will probably be in this unit for 3 days. They have surprisingly long visiting hours, with two visitors at a time. Wendell was able to stay in there for 2 hours while the rest of us went in one at a time.

Seeing mom after her last surgery was horrific! So tonight I walked in the room expecting way worse and was pleasantly surprised. She was alert and trying to talk. Actually she didn't stop mouthing things the whole time while I was in the room. Too bad I can't read lips but Wendell was doing pretty well.

Theres something about seeing your mom with a trach and tubes going into her neck that's hard. But I'm still amazed at how well she looks. The inside of her mouth looks amazing. I can't wait to hear what a difference it makes in her speech. I'll post another update tomorrow, along with some pictures.

The Lord has been so good to our family.
