Possible Extubation Today

Yay! The docs were just here and are ready to take the tube out this morning. There is a buzz of activity and we are so excited for her. The doctor said that even if they take it out and all goes perfectly they will continue to watch her here overnight to be sure that all goes well. We are hoping that she's off the ventilator soon so we're able to hold her. If so then Shan will go home for the night, I'll stay here and he'll come back tomorrow with my mom and Noah to pick us up. That way Noah can see the hospital (I wonder if kids' imaginations are worse than reality sometimes) and see the fun play room for the kids. I absolutely cannot wait to see him and it will be great to finally see my mom considering she's been here almost a week and I haven't seen her.

Okay so we will keep you posted. As soon as the tube is out we'll post an update and hopefully a little video. :) :)

Pray that the extubation goes well and that her throat has gone down enough to leave it out.
Pray that she is able to eat soon and that Shan gets home and back safely.

They're here!

It's Brook-your cousin. Know that we have been praying for your family. Sometimes Robert forgets Jordan's name and prays for "Jennifer and George." We will continue to pray and will put these latest needs on our Sunday School prayer list. I love you and hope to hear from you when you get a chance.

Praise God for His kindness and mercy as He has so faithfully carried you through.

We are rejoicing with you in the good news and praying for your return home!

We can't wait to see you!!!
