Thats More Like It!!

It looks like Carol Chase is doing better, almost ready to breath on her own!

Again, the following is cut and pasted from the NCWSA website.

"Here's a little update on Carole:

Her heart has been beating on it's own since they revived her on Saturday. She is on a ventilator but is bucking it i.e., breathing on her own over and above the ventilator rate. They actually tested her without the ventilator today and she breathed on her own for 15 minutes before they put it back on.

Tonight she was moving around and fighting the straps on her wrists. I held her hand and spoke to her and she
squeezed it, opened her eyes and looked right at me. These are all positive signs and a miracle in themselves but we've got a long, long way to go yet. Tomorrow, they'll do an EEG and get a much better idea on the prognosis. It's been estimated that her heart had been stopped for a minimum of 10 minutes before they revived her with CPR. That's from when the EMS arrived so we really don't know how long it was stopped before that.

I'll keep you posted as best I can. Thanks for all the support and prayers.

Phil"
Damn, thats gotta be some rough stuff to go through. Things are looking up though!
