We took Mom off the ventilator at 10:15 a.m., and she’s been pretty stable since then. Some erratic breathing, and she’s on morphine, but that’s about it. The doctor said that she had actually improved overnight, but nothing that would make a difference in the long haul. The woman is a fighter, and she’s still fighting.
Given this, the siblings have decided to do some shift work. I’ve come home now, and am going to go to the gym, and get outside, and go back at dinner time for the evening. My sister and brother are staying until dinner, and then going home. My father will not leave her side until this is over, so he might be staying overnight if need be.
Given her condition, we thought this might be fast than it might look now.
