Together, we are an ocean…

Ericka is still continuing to make great headway! Her body is slowly healing and we are now working on getting her stronger. The right ventricle has greatly improved and yesterday the team surgically removed the machine that was helping her heart – she is now doing all the work on her own.  The staff here has strongly encouraged us to temper any thoughts of a “speedy” recovery. With everything that Ericka has been through, we will need to be patient as the healing and rehabilitation process will take time. The good news is, we are certainly still moving in the right direction.

Today’s goals are complete:

Sit-up in bed  ✔️

Move to the edge of the bed ✔️

Stand (assisted) ✔️

Shuffle a few steps (assisted) ✔️

Sit down in the room chair ✔️

Strengthen lungs using the Incentive Spirometer multiple times a day ✔️

To all the prayer warriors around the country that have been by our side – your prayers are working! We sincerely thank you.
