***UPDATE ON BEANSMAMA - Monday 10/9/17 at 12:15PM Eastern Time***
They've removed the breathing tube, and our BeansMama woke up feisty.
This is good. She's fighting. I'm told she woke up "swearing up a storm and asking for A&W Root Beer."
The doctors are saying she's not out of the woods yet. They want to see her liver normalize over this next week. If she can get over that hurdle, things will be looking really good. So let's keep those prayers and love going in her direction that her body will continue to heal as she needs.
I've passed on all of the love and well-wishes that you all have sent, and her sister has thanked us profusely for all of the support and love. She notes that she will forward the thread to her mom, who will read it to beansmama so she knows we're all thinking of her and routing for her.
As always, I'll provide more updates as I receive them.
