Hannah had a better night last night. Her breathing has improved and their is a chance that she will be moved to the step down unit today. Jude and I are frazzled but our family and friends have offered us the kindest and most hopeful expressions of love and support.
Cannot say thank you enough.
Here is a photo of Hannah and her big brother taken in happier times.
One last note. People who have read Learning from Hannah and In the Arms of Elders know that Hannah plays the role of teacher in those books. Well, in the ICU the professor asked if students could listen to her lung sounds because she had something called tubular breath sounds. We said sure. It was good to see Hannah teaching those medical students something important and useful.
One more last note. What is it with girls these days. They love to show the belly button— Dad does not approve!!!!
