Devon Grey Rodgers is with Mac Brackenrich.
Thursday, November 16
Mac has had a very good day. His surgery earlier went great and he’s actually been able to rest today. It makes my heart smile to know that he’s more comfortable.All of the tubes in his mouth are officially gone and all he has left is the ventilator hooked to his trach.
Seeing his entire face for the first time in almost three weeks made me want to explode with excitement. I can’t wait to kiss his lips once he’s awake a little more! The nurse he had today even shaved him.The plan is to gradually start bringing Mac off of sedation over the next couple days. His pulmonologist mentioned earlier that he is very happy with the way Mac looks clinically and how things are going. That is a HUGE accomplishment and something that we’ve been dying to hear.Keep praying for us. We’ve taken little steps up until now, but these next days are going to be filled with huge leaps to get to where we need to be next.What you all are seeing is nothing short of God working on Mac and his story. We’re slowly writing the end to this chapter and getting ready to start another, so stay tuned.As always, we appreciate your support, love, and prayers. We COULDN’T do it without you. We love each of you 🖤
