After the second surgery, the surgeons again went to my family and described the situation. I was much sicker now. They described how they could not stabilize me and I needed ECMO. My husband then asked “After the last surgery you said the next step was ECMO. What is the next step after ECMO?” The surgeon explained
“That’s it. ECMO is the last resort and that is all we can do for her. It is up to her now.”
Nana then said “Well she is in God’s hands now!” The surgeon said “What a wonderful place to be.”
Around 5 pm my dear friend Candice posted this update on our Caringbridge website.“Cathy woke up for Eli and was able to answer basic questions! Praise the Lord for answered prayers! She is showing signs of brain activity and is still on the ECMO machine.
