July 10th = Day 22

From Ron:

Elena has been on the ventilator for 21 days today. Sometime this weekend they will do a tracheotomy on Elena. This is being done to prevent or minimize damage to her vocal cords. It is also a small sign that she is improving. In fact Doctor Mengus, her Pulmonary Specialist, acknowledged that baring any major event she should recover. The hospital still lists her as critical but there is no doubt she is improving.

Let's celebrate this first sliver of good news while remaining vigilant with our prayers for her full recover. Her family thanks you all for your concern for her and for us.

  1. We all need the slivers of hope and I still believe 2 steps forward even if one step back at progress. My Thoughts and prayers are with and for Elena and for Laura Ron and Melissa and Mom Elena as well. Rita
