I just go off the phone with OKIE. Loretta has started responding, by blinking her eyes and raising her thumb once or twice for yes or no. She is wrapped tightly due to the broken ribs and the device shakes her to try to keep fluid from building up in her lungs.
However, pneumonia has developed and she is on heavy antibiotics. They are going to put her back into a drug induced coma for 3 or 4 days to let the antibiotics take effect.
Obviously, we need to take authority over the pneumonia. They are also going to a trach on her to see if that helps her breath on her own.
OKIE is exhausted.
His son is living on coffee and not much else. He is not leaving the hospital. They both need continued prayer for strength and peace and rest.
The love they exhibit for this precious daughter and wife is exemplary. He appreciates all the prayers and wants everyone to know how much he loves everyone.
The impact of the crash was such that it separated the bed of the pickup from the rest of the crew cab.
