About half an hour ago, we took Char off the ventilator support and she is breathing on her own with a little oxygen support! YEAH!!!
Her chest tube is still draining blood but not as much. Her haemoglobin dropped again due to the blood loss and right now we are transfusing her. SO PLEASE REMEMBER TO KEEP THE BLOOD AND PLATELETS DONATION COMING IN! (Please refer to the blog entry before this)
Char was a little freaked out during the extubation process but she followed through the instructions properly and we were able to remove the breathing tube swiftly. As expected, her first words were "Ma Ma"! OH HOW I MISS HER VOICE!!!
Thank you for all your prayers! It works, please keep them coming in by busloads and truckloads or whatever spaceshuttle-loads!
And most importantly, thank you for faithfully following us through our journey every step of our way. As personal as our journey is, you have always been an integral part, even as a silent supporter.
Thank you also to all the friends who rushed to ICU to rally their support. When I look around me, I know that I'm blessed with some explosive GIRL POWER around me!
Charmaine loves you all and so do Cyn mommy and Jase!
Thank you everyone!!!
One minute at a time, one step at a time and one day at a time!
