June 4th-6th

Slow but steady is how the doctors describe Abby's progress today. The goal for the next few days is to wean Abby off the ventilator, which is a huge step on the way to recovery. She has to be off the ventilator before she can be moved to the rehab unit at Children's Hospital. Abby has been sleeping almost continually since the tracheostomy on Monday, and is still in pain from it when she is awake. It's healing slowly and helping breathe with greater ease.    
She loves the cards people have been sending and smiles (sometimes cries) when they are read to her.  
Proverbs 3: 5-6 was the scripture she asked Pastor Brad to read when he came to pray for her the other day:   "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths."
Thank you all for your love,support, and prayers. Please keep praying in faith, as we do, for a full recovery and that God will be glorified through her testimony.  Please pray specifically for her lungs and diaphragm to function strongly as the doctors assess her breathing.
