22 days later...

Wendy's move from the ICU to the 6th floor was emotional. She had a hard time saying goodbye to her nurses and the ICU staff that has cared for her with such compassion and love for the past 22 days. Wendy has a neighbor in her new room. Her neighbor is expected to be in the room for at least 2-3 more days.

Dr. Calhoun expressed his deepest regards to Wendy's family tonight. He thought she would have been home by now. Unfortunately too many complications arose.

Please pray for Wendy tonight, her first night in a new room on a new floor. She is trying very hard to be brave, but she still wishes she was in the comfort of the familiar and attentive ICU. There was a food mix up tonight and she had to wait until 7:30 pm for her dinner to arrive. A delayed food tray would never have happened in the ICU. Pray for her comfort, strength, and peace tonight.


  1. Wendy,

    I'm so thrilled you have made it out of ICU! I know this must be scary, but it means you are improving! You will continue to get better. God, family and friends are all on your side. I share in your hope that you can come home soon to your life with your family. You are so amazing in what you have overcome. We pray every day for your recovery.

    Love, Cara
