Wednesday morning update

I've just run home form the hospital with Josie to get a shower and change clothes while she catches up on cartoons. Last night they started Marie on steroid injections to clear up the inflammation in her lungs in addition to the IV antibiotics. So far, it seems to be working. She wanted dinner last night and was talking some after being pretty unresponsive all day. Last night she slept okay (as good as you can in a hospital) and this morning was sneaking sips from my coffee.

The doc is probably with Luke talking about her right now, so I'm going to hurry and shower and get back (so nice that we're only 5 min from the hosp!). Thank you for all the prayers and kinds words, and too all of you who have called and those of you who offered for help with Jo. We can't say enough how much we appreciate all of that.

Marie's improving and doing well right now, and we're just hoping this trend continues!

Ugh, pneumonia scares the poop out of me! I am praying that the treatments continue to help her little lungs expand and take in O2. Glad the hospital is just a minute from home - nice to get a shower and get Jo some 'tooney time. Continuing to send much love, thoughts and many prayers. Thank you and Luke for the updates. I know you'd rather be by her bedside.
