Thank you everyone. I just don't know anymore. But please continue to keep her in your prayers, love and light and send Guardian Angels to help her.

Lasted update from her sister:

"Ok guys, it's been a long day. The morning started off with Christal having mucus in her lungs, they scoped her and suctioned everything out, they have continued to do that through out he day. She has been removed off of her original sedative, her heart rate was randomly dropping, then climbing back up. This went on for a few hours; they did an EKG and changed her sedative after about an hour her heart rate rose and leveled out. She is now stable.
Today has been an emotional roller coaster. Sitting and watching my sisters heart rate fall in to the 30's was the worst/ scariest thing I have ever seen. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers."

Ok I just wanted to update. After the last update they have left her alone to see if the ICP levels would go back down. Here is the latest update from her sister.

"Evening update on Christal she has maintained good stability through out the day. They are watching her ICP levels (pressure in her head) constantly. Today we were asked to take about an hour break and leave the room because her levels were elevated and not coming down. We are getting closer to her levels being maintained, once that happens they will start to lower the sedation. This evening it has been 7 days since the accident; she still remains in the coma state. I can't even start to explain what the family is going through. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers."

Thanks for everyone who sent prayers and beams of healing light and love. And don't forget those Guardian Angels.

It sounds like she's getting better, slowly but surely. I'm going to continue praying for her until you post that she's being released from the hospital -- and probably even after that. Prayer works!

Thank you so very much!!! Here is today's update. It sounds promising!!!!

"Christal had a good rest day, Her levels spiked a few times but they came back down. She is on medicine for pneumonia and she is responding to the medicine very well. She has been having hand movement but today she was moving her fingers. (she's still unconscious but that's great muscle movement) It's amazing to see her do something new! One day at a time is all we can do. Keep praying daily, hourly, as often as you think about it."

Sorry guys it just does not look good.

Last night's update:

"Evening update. With her ICP levels fluctuating so much they replaced the bolt ( monitor on her head) she is still having high ICP levels on occasion that require medicine to bring down. Tomorrow I am going to talk to the doctor and the neurologist to see if we can understand any better what lies ahead.

*faith, prayer and miracles*"

Todays update shines a bit more hope...

"Talked to the neurological doctor about her condition and we still have hope. The progression has been slow since she arrived at the hospital but the progress we have made is in the right direction. They believe the increase in ICP has been because of her pneumonia. She will be on medication for about another week. They won't be weaning her off the sedation medication until the ICP levels are lowered. So basically were looking at least another week before the sedation medication is lowered and we try to wake her up. I will keep updates coming as soon as I know, but it looks like we're going to have a long slow progressing week. *faith, prayer and miracles* "

Thanks for the updates, TVC15. There will probably be steps forward and steps backward until she's recovered. All we can do is pray that the steps forward overcome all else. all in God's time. Still praying and will be praying until you post that she's totally fine again.
