As of last night, Joni is out of ICU. The doctors say that she is progressing exactly as they would like, and now, she will begin her recovery from TWO major surgeries. We expect to be here for another 5-7 days for recovery, but Joni is much more comfortable now...and she is no longer in danger from the infection. She has been upgraded to "clear liquid" meals (she says they are lacking in taste) and has good blood counts.
We continue to ask for no visitors as that delays her recovery. She can't wait to see you all when she is healthy again.
