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.
