    Day 22...Not too many signs of waking up today. Liver function continues to improve. Dialysis took off about 5 pounds today, well tolerated. JP drain out today. Dressing has stayed dry and intact all day. I was a little worried since he had so much output from that. Good nurse taking care of him tonight (they're all good, actually, I love them all) so I won't worry (too much). Happy New Year everybody.

    Day 23...chest xray looks amazing today, still improving daily. Vent settings down again today 35% FIO2, PEEP 4 and BPM now down to 14. I can't believe just a few days ago it was set at 40. Lung doc predicts moving him by this Friday. If the rest of his organs cooperate, doc thinks Dan is a good candidate for getting off the vent ( with aggressive rehab). Blood Pressure dipped kind of low this evening so that was a little worry, but improved with fluids. But he's not making urine now. (2 days of no dialysis) His stoma is darker but still viable so they are watching that carefully. Doc says that it is just edematous like the rest of him. So...we'll see what tomorrow brings. Me and DD watched "Ghost" at the hospital tonight. One of my favorite movies but particularly sad at this time in life. (Hate it when Willie and Carl die--gives me the creeps!) Thank you all you faithful prayer warriors. I know that prayer is making the difference.

    Wishing you an uneventful 2006. I pray that your dh steadily improves, and that the message of Christ will reach him through this ordeal. Also, I pray for your family's peace with the knowledge that even though the burdens feel as though they are on our shoulders sometimes, we never have control. Instead of feeling helpless and out of control, realize that this is a gift that we have because we don't have the weight on our shoulders. This was something that I learned when I was 21 yrs old and gave birth to a 24 wkr who is now a healthy 5 yr old. Once I released myself from the responsibility and the guilt that follows, I felt rejuvenated spiritually and my son miraculously improved in about 2 hours. I also wanted to recommend some spiritual fiction novels that deal with the subject of converting people to Christianity through crises such as the one you are dealing with. It is a 4-book series by Beverly LaHaye and Terri Blackstock and they are so wonderful and easy to read! The first is Seasons Under Heaven (I think) and all four have the word "Season" in them. It is nice to have a good book in the hospital. Sorry I wrote so much, but I felt compelled.
    Dont lose hope! Suzanne
