Today's update was written by Wendy's dad, CB.
"Because He lives We can face tomorrow. Because He lives all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future. And life is worth living just because He lives.
Friends and Family,
Georgia and I are still with Wendy at the hospital. I will return to Madera tonight to care for the grand boys for the week. Georgia will remain to love and care for Wendy until she is home. Our HOPE and PRAYER is to be reunited by THANKSGIVING.
Simply put, Wendy must be able to do the following on her own before she is released:
* proper bowel functions
* consume solid foods to sustain her without the IV nutrition
* walk on her own with walker
* no IV’s for medicine or pain
She will go home with a Wound V.A.C. and a home health nurse for assistance. The most beautiful nurse in the world, her mother will care for her. Weeks and weeks of physical therapy will follow.
