My mom is still in ICU, but she is off the ventilator, and her white cell count is going down...my sister said she seems to respond more to stimulation...

Upon further investigation, the doctors think she had a small stroke, affecting her left side. Again,it's a bit of 'wait and see' as to how much permanent damage she is left with. She is still being fed with an NG tube, so, I suppose, after she moves to a normal nursing floor, they will try to start feeding her by mouth again.

So, thank you all, again, for your prayers! They are definately working!!!!

Dutch hugs, Kathi

    Praying that every day brings her greater strenght and that any effects from the stroke are minimal.
