Hello all, I've just heard from Donna, Anji's friend who is allowing me to share her updates with Anji's friends here:

"Anji has had a very rough week. Her temp keeps running 102 to 104. Told she was awake a little more today. They are going to try to wean her off the vent starting tomorrow. PLEASE pray!"

What a battle our dear Anji is fighting. It's been about 3 weeks now!

Hi All:

Update today from Anji's friend Donna:

"Anji has improved some. They took her off the vent yesterday. Sarah said she was cranky & hungry which are good signs. Anji has been through the grinder for the past 3 weeks. I'm sure all of her family (friends) appreciate your concern & prayers. Please keep the prayers going for all of them. Thank you."

So good to finally get some good news about our friend Anji!

Hello All,

I just heard from Anji's friend Donna, and the news continues to improve!

"Anji is doing so much better. She is off the vent. Kind of fuzzy in her memory but that should improve. Having a few problems with her motor skills but that should also return. Sarah said she is having trouble with one of her arms/hand but therapy should restore it. Please keep praying. She has a long road ahead of her but I do believe she is finally on the road to recovery. Praising God for her healing!"
