Kathleen has been off oxygen for several days now and seems to be feeling much better. Tonight she put on her breathing cap to breathe out of her nose and mouth like she does at home and struggled to keep her blood oxygen level up but fought on. As she continues to progress, and her antibiotics finish up, she looks like she will make Tuesday her discharge day. That is good news particularly because on Thursday, she has an appointment at Valley Medical to see if she can go on the same medications that may have helped snap a firefighter out of a ten year long coma.

Electrical stimulation may be back in vogue for stroke recovery therapy

The miraculous stories of recovery about the firefighter, and others, gives me hope the same could happen for Kathleen. :) I know I'm idealistic, but I'd rather be this way than pessimistic like some doctors are!

After reading the article you linked to in this blog entry, one of my fave country songs came to mind. It's "The Impossible" by Joe Nichols, and it's very inspirational. :) The story is that no matter how impossible or hopeless something may seem, it doesn't always end up that way.

Here's a clickable link to the lyrics, if you're like to read them: The Impossible. (there's a niggling grammatical error in the chorus where "happens" should be "happen", but aside from that, it's OK.)

As always, good thoughts and best wishes to Kathleen and the whole family! :)

I'm glad to hear that Bean is doing better after a rough couple of weeks. Hope she's able to come home soon.


Thanks Shari and KB. Nice lyrics Shari, it is inspirational.
