Post Op Day 2

KSo, quick update.  Emma is doing well.  Today we are working at trying to extubate (remove breathing tube).  So, we cut off everything she was on to keep her sedated thinking it would take around an hour or so and we could remove the breathing tube.  Well in typical Emma fashion, here it is at 9:09pm our time, we started at around 1pm, and we still are not ready to remove.  She is still pretty sedated from everything they used, so we are hoping either over the night or in the morning.  Her heart is stable and everything in terms of her labs and numbers looks good. Huge blessing!  So the plan is just to try to extubate her and then possibly tomorrow, remove some chest tubes and other lines in her chest to make it a little more comfortable. 

I would like to say a special thank you to all the nursing staff, doctors, respiratory therapists, etc etc that are taking such good care of Emma here!  They have all been truly amazing!

We also give thanks to God, who has been with us from the beginning of this journey.  He is truly watching over us and blessing us each day!

God is good, all the time.  And all the time, God is good!

Prayer Requests:
1) Pray that Emma is able to be extubated soon and she is able to stay off the ventilator and breathe on her own well.
2) Pray that they will be able to continue to remove lines from her chest, etc. as this is a good sign that we are becoming more and more stable and it will also make it more comfortable for Emma.
3) Pray for all the healthcare staff that is doing such an amazing job!
4) Pray for strength for Sarah and me as we continue on this journey of life.
