10/23/12 from Mom

Shane had a restful night last night and today he was able to come off the ventilator for about 8 hours, which is huge. They put a mask over his trach and he was breathing on his own. Praise GOD!!!!!! He became tired and now has the ventilator back on for the evening to get a good nights rest. If all goes well tonight, they will repeat the process tomorrow and try for a longer time off the ventilator. His medication has significantly been reduced and seems to be more alert at times. Praying that today was a step in the right direction and that the steps continue to move forward. One of the nurses suggested that maybe if Shane had a couple of friends stop by, it might be good for him. Chelsea was able to get in touch with Meghan and Raven (two of Shane’s close friends)and they came for a brief visit). This put a smile on his face. Since Shane is still in the ICU trauma unit visitation is limited and we were privileged to be able to allow a short visit. Thanks again for the continued support and prayers.
