Tuesday morning

Drew had a boring night. Just what we like to hear!

This morning we brought Ava over to my mom & dad at the hotel. It was nice to wake up with her and get her dressed and ready. They are bringing her to the hospital "preschool" today. I think she will enjoy playing and being with other kids.

When we got here around 8 the good news was that Drew's left lung reinflated so they cancelled the bronch. Yay! There is a new team on this week and when they rounded this morning they decided to try and extubate today! I am cautiously optimistic about this. I can't wait for him to be extubated, but I don't want to be disappointed if things change.

That's all that's really going on around here. I'll definitely post a picture once that tube is out! For now here's one of Ava visiting Drew this morning.

Woo hoo! I am so glad that he had a good night and that his lung is better! That is great that they are planning to take the tube out, but I understand trying to be a bit cautious. There won't be as big of a let down if it does not happen today. But it will--God is good!! Love ya!!
