Omi's off the ventilator!

The ventilator was taken out this morning - Omi is breathing by herself with an oxygen mask on. She has to really concentrate on it, but she's doing it. One more tube/wire/machine gone! She still has a temp - everything is coming back normal, so she's thrown everyone for a loop on what is causing her infection. Omi also gets a break from the dialysis today - but will have it again tomorrow. Mom and I put up some pictures for her to see today - it made her really happy! Omi can't speak yet - but she lets us know what she means by using her eyes and eyebrows.
