I called Greg with the news that they had been unsuccessful in the attempts to wean GirlMic/Leslie from the ventilator. I reported the good news of her monitor readings. I met her RT Shannon who was such an encouragement to me as I watched her talk to Leslie in her sedated state. She moved her equipment and did her assessments with a gentleness that helped me through this dark time. I told her of Leslie being trained and working as a RT at the Med Hospital before going into the Navy. I was her voice in the wilderness this day.
