Ericka did well last night

Ericka did well last night. She is not fully awake yet but she has been responding to simple commands, so her neurological functions are looking good and the staff is very pleased (a little surprised) at her early progress. If you know Ericka, this should not surprise you – she is a straight-up fighter!! She also understood, albeit intermittently, that her Mom and Dad were with her.

Currently, Ericka is back in surgery. They are removing one of the support systems that has been oxygenating her blood. They were particularly concerned with the blood flow to her right leg overnight; however, it is their hope that blood will start flowing naturally once this apparatus is removed. While in the Operating Room, they will additionally determine if she can or can not be removed from other support systems. Bottom line: She is doing better than expected at this point. Please keep praying for our sweet Ericka as she has a long way to go.
