Not so good...

My aunt was taken off her respirator on Friday and has been breathing on her own. This is another big step in recovery...

However, I received word yesterday that her system is shutting down. Her kidneys are failing and every fourth heartbeat is irregular. The doctors did another scan and believe that if she "recovered", she may only have the mentality of a 2-year-old.

This is very sad news for us... At the same time, one must wonder if it isn't more merciful if her body does, in fact, fail and allow her to move on. My hope is to have a few moments alone with her if this is the case.

May God's will be done and may He bring peace to the family regardless of the outcome.
