Mom was kept under sedation last night with a breathing tube. This morning they removed the tube and stopped the anesthesia. At 9 am she was semi-awake, and at noon when Dad, Jeanne, Tom and Cheryl visited her she was awake and able to talk (more details in Tom's e-mail below). I don't know about the visit at 5, but at 8 when Dad, Jeanne, Cheryl, Stacey, Kathy, KG and Brett visited her she was very alert, knew everyone and was anxious to know the next steps medically. I believe the only doctor she saw today was the neurosurgeon but should she more tomorrow and the next day to decide on the path forward. She should move out of the surgical ICU tomorrow.
