Angelica is now stable at UCSF Medical Center. They are going to perform a tracheostomy tomorrow. This will allow her to continue to use the ventilator but without the tube down her throat. It will also get her off of the sedatives and begin sitting up, standing and walking. All things needed to get through a successful transplant.

Some positive news! A bed in the ICU at UCSF Medical Center has become available. Angelica should be transported today where she will be evaluated to be reactivated on the lung transplant list. If activated, we then pray for a healthy set of compatible lungs to become available quickly. I've heard the term "outpouring of support" before in movies and TV, but never had I experienced it firsthand until now. I will keep you all updated.
