Friday Night Lights

Erin is resting and had lots of great support from her friends today. The Doctors are confident that she will eventually be able to breath on her own after some tests they performed today. She is squirming around and as usual I can raise her blood pressure simply by talking to her. It is actually amazing to watch her vitals as she is being talked to, her heart rate increases and she starts breathing over her ventilator. There is tons of support still pouring in and we have kept an upbeat atmosphere here at Ochsner ICU.


  1. So glad to keep getting good news Dustyn.

  2. Great news Dustyn! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family.
    Leona and Dwayne Hopkins

  3. That's great to hear about her vital signs. She is in there and she just can't speak back to you... Yet! I can't wait to hear what she says to you as her first words. She must have so much to say, I can't wait for her to make us laugh again:)

  4. Because Erin will eventually read this... must add that upbeat atmosphere included - or at least there were rumors of things such as "stanky leg" dance lessons... luckily for those involved, it seems no video has been posted!
