June 28, 2010
Finally something is working on Gaby the way that it was intended to. The VA ECMO is keeping her saturations high and acting as her lungs and heart while she rests and lets this virus clear her lungs. Today her chest x-ray shows complete "white out" which means her lungs are completely fluid filled and will take a long time to clear.

We are amazed that techonology exists that can basically keep Gaby alive while her body waits out this virus. We are thankful to all the staff here who are so encouraging, caring, and wonderful. We know she is getting STELLAR care here.

Aside from the medical stuff going on, we are maintaining. Gabe traveled home with Macy today and will spend the evening with the kids at home. He will return tomorrow and tag team and I will spend a couple days at home. That is all we have planned for now. We are just taking it one day at a time.

We are hopeful today. We are taking a picture each day to show her progression through this process. While it is hard to see her this way, we are thankful that she is here with us and has this chance to show her spunk and survival skills.

Thanks for your continued prayers and support. We feel your love and feel Christ's presence with us. Today is an ok day.
