Zoey Week 93: June 3 - June 9, 2012

Zoey's week? She had a slow, but steady climb. The results of the C.T. Scan on Tuesday were all positive. Lungs and digestive tract all showed an improvement. After the Doctor's report, she was given some broth and jello. First food since entering ICU 33 days ago. On Wednesday she was given broth and jello again, but Dad reported that "Zoey really wanted the tamales that were available from the cafeteria." Thursday her diet was upped to pea soup. Gotta take things slow.

Her medical team has made significant changes to her pain medication. The changes will be good in the long run, at the moment the transition is difficult. Her Steroids have been reduced another notch which should help the Osteoporosis problems. Unfortunately, that will take time to see progress. Other changes in drugs have also taken place this week. I just can't pronounce or even attempt to spell them. She continues to fight through the Physical Therapy sessions. Don't know how she does it without her Fentanyl patches.

Saturday was a changing of the guards, Dad left for home in Seattle, Mom left home and took up her place at Zoey's side in L.A. Don't know what the plans are for the coming week, but at the moment Zoey continues in ICU.

We continue to be thankful to God, Friends, and Family for the constant strength, support, prayers, and hope we feel daily.

    Please let Zoey and her family know that there are those of us who continue to include them in our prayers. Even though
    I've lost two out of three children myself,
    I can't imagine the pain of watching my
    child suffer like Zoey is doing. It would
    absolutely destroy me. Thanks for another
