Updates today from the hospital seem very positive. Ruthie had the ventilator and breathing tube removed this morning. It was pretty painful and she feels like she has a lot to cough up, but it’s OUT! PRAISE THE LORD!
Joel was able to talk to her on the phone. She didn’t talk, but he was able to say we and MANY people are praying for her and that we are looking forward to seeing her soon.
She will probably be transferred to a step-down unit tomorrow, but today and tonight she will remain in Intensive Care.
At this point, please pray that the pain can be minimal and that she will be comfortable, she seems pretty uncomfortable at this time.
