Sunday May 25

Got my update by phone this morning as I have had to return home here in San Jose. Yesterday was a day for recuperation, Agnes was pretty tired from all the work of breathing on Saturday. She has also started physical therapy, which is going to be a long road after being virtually motionless for almost 2 weeks. She spent a bit of the day back on the ventilator to let her rest. There was a final minor surgical procedure to stabilize her, and she is doing fine now. Tomorrow she will be moved from Anderson to another place to allow her to be weaned off the ventilator and restored to health. Stay tuned for more tomorrow. Meanwhile, thank you, staff at Anderson, for keeping my mother with us. Good luck with the new ICU, shown under construction here, and may you keep up with the work of saving lives.
