Well, someone is doing absolutely amazing. So far today Super Jess has :
- Moved to the step down unit
- Gone for 2 walks
- Eaten solid foods
- Had a sponge bath by yours truly :)
- Guzzled down a tall blonde
- Had 2 chest tubes removed
- Learned to cough on her own
- Spoke on the phone
Her oxygen level is between 99/100% , which is fantastic. She now has a clearer picture of what her future may bring which makes both of us very happy.
Jess wants to thank EVERYONE for their positive comments and support throughout this journey. She attributes her quick recovery to the outpouring of support and positive energy from all of you.
We also want to thank three little boys who have been so supportive, caring, patient and loving throughout all of this ... Lukas, Jacob and Andrew, you guys are truly amazing kids and we love you.
Even though Jess is doing great, her recovery is far from over. Her new lungs have to settle into their new home and this will take months of hard work. Comments on the blog will help push Jess to a speedy recovery, so please don't stop now.
Last, but not least, even though Jess has her new lungs, we won't stop advocating for organ donation. It's way too important and so many more are waiting for the gift of life.
