No More Breathing Tube!

This morning the doctors decided that it was time to take out her breathing tube.  After taking her off of her sedation/pain medicine, they watched her for a while and decided that it was time for her to come off.  They are keeping a very close watch on her since she has a history of collapsed lungs, lots of secretions, etc.  As of now, she has been of the breathing tube for one hour and looking good.  Please continue to pray that she does amazing breathing on her own!  God is truly good!

Some additional prayer requests:

1)  As always, continue to pray for her heart.  That it continues to function amazingly well.
2)  Pray for her lungs, that they will continue to function very well!
3)  Pray for the doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, etc.
4)  Pray for my wife to get to feeling better.  She came down, yesterday, with a little illness.  She is an amazing mother and not being here with Emma is no fun for her at all.
