That night, we actually Facetimed with Kristin from her hospital bed. She said she was getting stronger every day.

This week, on Friday, her friend Lisa Saxon posted that Kristin is now off of a ventilator and breathing well on her own. She passed her swallow test and is eating and drinking.

The next step is getting her into therapy, the details of which are still being worked out.
