Shifra Robkin Update from Rabbi Yogi

Nov 10th, 2009 by yrobkin | 12

What an amazing day it has been.  Shifra is completely off the resperator as you all know, and her chest tubes and all the IV’s have been removed as well!  Sedation has been discontinued, and Shifra is awake and smiling and lucid in all of her thoughts and comments.  I cannot tell you how amazing it has been to not only see her eyes open, but to see her old smile back, and to be able to have full conversations with her.   Shifra innocently asked the nurse yesterday, “so do I sleep at the hospital tonight”?  She is very weak and tired, and is being visited by an occupation therapist, and a speech therapist to get her muscles back in shape, and relearn how to walk and write again (I guess you are never too old!)  Next satep will be to locate a good rehab hospital.  Looking forward to continued progress and happy moments with Shifra …  Yogi Robkin   

By the way, a big thank you to everyone for all your prayers and chesed during this process.  Please keep your prayers up!
