GOd is good. Shane had his second good day in a row. He was off the ventilator the entire day and was still off it when we left the hospital a short while ago. The respiratory therapists are working with him to rid him of the machine and to be able to cap the trach so he can talk. This will be great as it is very difficult for us to try and read Shane’s lips to let us know what he needs. Very frustrating for all of us. The Doctor did advise Shane of his paralysis and his response (lip reading) was when can I use crutches? Shane was able to get through the day with this new knowledge. He flirted with the nurses and was making faces at us. He actually made fun of my sweater one time that I left the room to Chelsea because I had pink palm trees on it. When we asked him to smile for Tyler with two thumbs up for a text picture he did that for us. He has such a sweet spirit and we saw it displayed throughout the day: he is loved so much. We are not sure how Gods plan for his life will evolve but we are so grateful for each day and taking each one at a time. He is on minimal medication and he continues to be weaned. We are forever grateful for your love and relentless prayer; our lives will never be the same because of you!! I trust tomorrow will continue to bring great news.
