Good morning everyone,
We have some exciting news! Ingrid is off the ventilator for now which means her lungs are now working on their own again. This is a huge step in the right direction in terms of her recovery. However, they might need to put her back on during and after the back op.
Now that the swelling has come down and she is physically stable we want to let everyone know she has sustained substantial brain damage which they can only start testing from now on. Figuring out the extent of it will be a slow process which they will determine over time as the medication wears off, and when the tracheostomy tube is removed and so on.
Ingrid is moving her left side a bit more (fingers, toes)
She is having boots fitted for her feet to prevent a foot drop (from lying down for so long)
She can now track people with her eyes and is aware of her surroundings
She can non-verbally answer questions and follow instructions
Thank you to the people who have donated so far, we appreciate it so much. This is all going towards giving her the best chance of a recovery. Here is the link for the Back a Buddy fund for those that have missed it and have been asking
Have a good weekend. Be safe and take care.
