Someone decided it was time to extubate herself, but fortunately let the good doc do it for her. Char Char wasted NO TIME in letting everyone know that she was ready to be without the breathing tube! Missy was very vigorous, er...feisty, in her efforts. Mommy calls it 'the feisty Italian' in her but however it's labeled, Baby Girl made it be known...and she did beautifully once she was extubated.
The cultures came back NEGATIVE, including the shunt results. HUGE PRAISE TO GOD. We pray that they continue to be negative and that she is able to have her Gtube surgery on Day 10. Other prayer requests are for Patrick Jr. dealing with missing Mommy (and Daddy too!) as well as for our family as we wait for her homecoming, with peaceful hearts.
