Conversations

Because my brain is fried, I'm going to cut and paste an email exchange by way of updating:

me: Jane is still stable, we're just hoping she gives us a clear sign about what to do for her. Waiting and praying until then.

Raspberry: What kind of signs are we looking for here? Have you taught our girl Jane
Morse code? I want to send her good communication vibes but it would help if you tell me what language the doctors there speak...

me: Signs we're looking for: better oxygenation, being able to come back off the paralytic, no acute episodes. Well, everything hinges on all those things, so how she responds -- whether positively or not -- is the sign. No morse code yet; she speaks through the alarms and the monitors, though! We are just hoping for clarity, one way or the other.


I'll post more about the conversation we had with the doctors later. My incredible sister is dosing me with chicken noodle soup and chocolate chip cookies, and I'm about to succumb to the lure of a cup of tea in bed.

Good for you, Tia and much love to your sister. Sounds like chicken soup and chocolate chip cookies are exactly right. Especially IN BED!

Hopefully Jane will soothe and saturate and her course of breathing and coping will smooth out... those would be good signs I think. And a smile for her mom. That too.

Hugs and prayers ....
