I spoke with Carol of Scrapadabadoo this evening, and I have an update on her sister's condition for you. As you may know, Carol's sister suffered a very serious heart attack last week and did not show any brain activity following the arrest. She was put into a hypothermic state to preserve her brain function while her organs recovered.
Early yesterday morning they started letting her body temperature rise and she did wake up. She is able to blink, smile and turn her head, as well as to respond to basic questions about how she feels (if she hot, cold, in pain, etc.). The doctor's are pleased with her progress so far, but say they need to wait until she is off the ventilator to do a full assessment.
Her heart is clear and she is able to maintain her own blood pressure.
She has a touch of pneumonia, but that is improving with treatment.
Carol and her family appreciate your thoughts and prayers very much and she has told me they all feel them while they are with her sister in the hospital.
Carol will be posting updates on her sister's condition to Facebook. You can friend her here for more information: Carol Hester on Facebook.
