JOHN IS BREATHING ON HIS OWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God, through the hands of the Doctors, nursing personnel and that Trach did the trick! The respiratiory therapist came in about an hour ago and turn the ventilator off and John just kept a breathing!
I want to go out in the hall and do the happy dance!
They said that he will go back on the vent tonight just to give him some rest after all this exercise. Tomorrow, they will wake him up totally and we will then see how he breathes.
There is a step by step program that he will need to go through in order to fully be breathing on his own without the trach. I was really jumping the gun when I thought I'd be able to hear his voice soon. He is going to need to write love notes first. That is fine with me as long as he is around to bug me!
There is a Christian song that Andre Crouch wrote and a friend, Keith Brown, sang the first time I heard it. The name of the song is To God Be The Glory. Really it is My Tribute, but the prior seems to be the way the song is known.
These are the lyrics and they express what is on my heart this afternoon. As we approach the Easter celebration, this song is not appropriate for my joy today, but for the joy all Christians feel for what He has done. I hope you enjoy the song.
