More progress to report - praise the Lord! The doctors felt Abby was well enough leave ICU today. She is now in the Transitional Care Center (TCC). The TCC unit specializes in caring for patients with pulmonary problems. Her left lung and diaphragm are still weak and will take some time to strengthen. Her trach is healing slowly and she had her first trach change on Monday which went well, but it was very painful. Abby is truly scared of getting this changed as her eyes well up with tears when we tell her when it is going to happen next. Please pray that this gets easier for her.
They have also increased the frequency of her physical therapy.  She was put on a tilt table on Monday which tilted her to an almost standing position. This has now become a part of her everyday schedule.
