Update on Mel

Thursday Update On Mel:

THE BREATHING TUBE IS OUT!
Melanie has oxygen through a tube in her nose to help make the transition and to make sure her levels remain constant while they are monitoring the level of her breathing. They will assess when/if to put in the trachea tube as the day progresses.
The speech therapist was in earlier today and did note that she is seeing improvement in her responses. Now that the breathing tube is out, they will be able to determine her swallowing abilites.
Today is airway assessment day.....tomorrow is feeding tube assessment day.
Praise God! Everyday we see his power at work.
