Bentley has had a good few days. She is still on the ventilator, but her chest tubes came out today. Each day has yielded some hesitation toward removing the breathing tube, so they have left it in. Lindsay and I are both somewhat comforted by it, but do want to see progress.
Yesterday morning the team decided B was needing to train for the Mercedes Marathon. Therefore she needed some CPAP trials as sprints for some endurance training. She did well as each trial got longer and longer. Although she was showing improvement, the docs just didn’t feel like she was quite ready today. She did well today, but not quite as well as yesterday. Not exactly sure what tomorrow holds or what the plan will be. Tonight it’s aggressive respiratory therapy and dreaming in between.
She has been getting plenty of rest, and appears to have gotten some good PT from mom the last day or two. So that’s good. Continuing to pray for her body to rest, build strength, and her lungs to completely expand and clear up. Thank you !!!!!
