She's awake!


Yay! Jordan is awake and alert. This is the longest she's been awake, calm and alert since before surgery. She is looking around checking things out. She periodically starts crying (no sound comes out though because of the tube) and get agitated but is mostly okay.


Tube Update:

The staff has decided to wait another day to see if her throat swelling goes down before taking the tube out so for now we are status quo. Please pray that she will be calm over the next 24 hours while we wait to take the tube out. I think it will be hard on her because she is off the anti-anxiety medicine and we don't want her back on it. She will be awake and alert but annoyed with the tube down her throat and all the restraints. Pray too that she will sleep most of the night so we don't feel guilty leaving to sleep.


Will post more later.

It's so good to see her beautiful eyes looking at the camera. What a sweetie! We'll be praying for the tube removal to go well tomorrow, for her to sleep tonight and for the swelling to go down.

Here is another try. I have tried to post notes, but for some reason they don't go through!

We have been praying for all of you, and praise God for the wonderful progress that Jordan has been making! I have really enjoyed her slide show, too!!

I would really like to help you out after you get home, like maybe an evening out for you and Shan while I babysit.

We love you and thank God for your wonderful witness and strength that we know can only come from the Lord!

Love,

Nonie & Bruno
