Today, they tried to take her vent out and had to replace it back due to her not being able to breather on her own. They will try again to remove this on Thursday and if she is unable to breather on her own then they will replace the vent with a trach. Her x-ray looks better with a few spots still on her lungs. They are doing dialysis 3 times a week. Her vitals are staying strong and steady. She has a long road to recovery but she will make it with your thoughts and prayers.
