Day 9 - We have a voice!

It is just after lunch and Cody just left. Dad and I are here. Mom is sitting up in her chair and she can talk! And we can hear her!!!!! Pretty cool!

So since yesterday, the feeding tube is out. They took the trache tube out and put a cap on the trache which means we can hear here when she talks. They had to put a trache mask on her though because she was having a few issues with her breathing.

The only problem we are having is her heartrate is a little elevated. They just came in and did an EKG to see what needs to be done to get it back regular. They talked about possibly having to give her a little "shock" to get it back regular. But the cardiologist wants to try some more medicine before having to do that. They keep insisting it is nothing to be alarmed about but she can't go home with it elevated.

Yesterday visitors were Ann Rabalais and Cynthia Riser. Mom has received some beautiful flowers from her friend Jenny, Bob & Vanessa Lawrence & Julie & Rick Sanders, Centha, Johnathan, Tracy & Kinsey Bryant, Dorris & Jimmy Simmons.

This morning Coach Waggoner and Mrs Waggoner from Logansport came by after his doctors appt. They got to see mom during her physical therapy session which consisted of a morning walk in and out of her room

Great update, Emily. Thanks so much. Shirley, you are doing great! I am sure they will get your heartrate back to normal soon. I am so glad they have taken the feeding tube and trache out. That is wonderful!

Love you,

Jay Dawn

Shirley I am so happy your lovely daughter keeps us all in touch! I continue to keep you in my daily thoughts and prayers. You are making great progress! It just amazes me the things they can do with surgery today! You must have a wonderful group of Doctors because you are on your way to recovery so well! And to think you are speaking already! I know your days must seem long but each and every day you improve! Sit back and enjoy your flowers! Keep up the good work my dear!
