July 12th = Day 24

From Ron:

They will likely wait to install the tracheotomy until Monday.

I guess the easiest way to start this is that there were smiles a plenty in the ICU today. For the first time her doctors were stating she is doing much better, without adding that dreaded "/but/" to the end. Of course we all know that she is still very sick, and we all know that she is still weak and we all know there is always a possibility that something could change BUT the bottom line she is and looks stronger.

This is an appropriate time to comment on the staff at Kendall Regional. We've spoken about and seen the power of prayer. I will always believe that it was prayer that saved Elena to this point but at the same time God was there guiding the hands of all of the wonderful doctors, nurses and technicians who worked tirelessly around the clock. I have witnessed these people work for hours to change something one or two points. They are the best of the best and we will always remember all that they've done. All of these people have also joined us in our prayers because in spite of all of the science at work they believe in the power of prayer.

For now let's take Sunday to celebrate Elena's continued sojourn to recovery. Let's all join the doctors and nurses with a little smile for everything that has happened to bring us to this point.

Thank you all,
The Walters
