Breathing Assessment 1/2/2011

Kathryn did great!  Her first test with just a little machine support A+.  Then she went off of the machine with only oxygen running by for her to suck in if needed.  Kind of like having and oxygen tube in your nose.  Another A+   Machine free is in the near future.
She saw a few friends today.  More than we thought she would allow.  They all put big smiles on her face.  She is good at typing to communicate.  Tomorrow she will get the cuff for talking.  Yeah! 
It was a good day!

  4. Cambria (camper from June 2011) says "Hi, Panda! We were on the same field day team Lucky Leprechauns. That obstacle course was really funny. I was like 'What the heck am I doing?!' I am sorry to hear that you are in the hospital. I am glad that you are doing so well with the machines. It sounds scary. I am thinking about you, and I hope you feel better today. Love Cami."

  5. Yea! I knew you could do it!
    Love Ginger
