PEG switch out

Hello all - this is Andrea, Shawndra's sister. I wanted to let you know that Shawndra did come home for Christmas. We actually got to celebrate as our family on Saturday night. It was nice. Shawndra and Doug are getting used to being back home, adjusting to TPN, all the fun tubes, etc at home.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that Shawndra went in today for a procedure to change out the PEG tube for a different diameter tube. Haven't heard anything yet except for that the procedure is done and she is back in a room, waiting for her to wake up more. The doc had not returned back to her room to discuss how things went when I was talking with my mom.
I want to personally thank you all for all of your support for our entire family. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful family, group of friends, and community of supporters. I took this post upon myself, so sorry Shawndra and Doug, hope you'll get back on soon!!
Wishing each of you a Happy New Year! May you have many blessings this new year!
With great appreciation and love,
Andrea
(Shawndra's sister)

Thank you so much Andrea for the post. Even thought I don't know any of you, I am so concerned for your family and I pray everyday for a miracle. Shawndra has touched so many lives and I am a better person for having witnessed what a gracious, loving, brave person she is. She is an example to everyone by having faith, love and hope instead of bitterness and self pity. The wonderful person that she is, radiates from this blog. May peace and love be with all of you.

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for taking the time to keep us updated, last week and over the past few months. We hope your entire family can feel the love and prayers that surround you. We certainly are privileged that you choose to share your family and your journey with us, and we wish you continued strength and peace in 2009.

I have two sisters and know that we love one another deeply enough to endure whatever life throws at us; how blessed you both are to have one another.

xxxx,

jg in ca
