Update From Shifra
Hi everybody, this is OrthoMom, Shifra's designated updater.
First, the update on her brother's condition, in Shifra's own words:
My brother is doing better. They took out his breathing tube this afternoon and he's breathing well on his own with a little supplemental oxygen. He's responding a bit here and there and told me to "stop it" when I tried to hold his hand (his first words since the surgery.)This is good news, but all of our tefillot are obviously still needed.
Please ask everyone to keep davening for him but his stats have been good generally overall and he's starting to look like himself again (he had 8 liters of fluid pumped out of him via dialysis he was retaining water all over prior to that!)
Second, a message from Shifra to a couple of commenters:
Please tell Trep that I am not upset with him at all, quite the opposite and that that Mar Gavriel is right that it is exactly my friends neighbors and co-workers that I don't want to know about my blog ;-)
