Update . . .

I spent the day in the ICU with Gramms. She is doing better than anyone expected. She is still extremely critical, but they say she is making progress. Her daughters, my aunts, decided that they made a promise to her and still had the vent pulled even though the doctors thought it was premature. They wanted 2-3 more days. My aunts would not budge. I am glad I am not the one to have had to make that decision.'

So, they pulled the vent and boy, she was pissed. She began hollering, "I wanna go home!" And when that was met with "I know you do mom." She began to repeat, "NOW!" very loudly followed closely by "I want outta this bed!" I have no idea what to expect. Her heart is working very hard now that she off the vent but her pressures are sticking pretty good for her. Her heart rate is still skyrocketing.

She's a fighter. I know where my dad got it from!
