The Story of Elissa June
Things started to pick up after that. Elissa had really turned a corner and our spirits were raised. It stopped being a question of "if" she would come home, but "when." By March 23, she was off the ventilator and by March 24, I was dressing her in her first outfit.... "Berry Cute!" With her lungs working again, Elissa was breathing room air without oxygen support by March 27... then the longest part of our journey began: the drug wean.
