Enough with the... not ideal news and on to some praises... They just took out her LA line (it measures the pressure in her left atrium) which is a number that I love to stare at on the monitor, so having that number no longer available will give me one less thing to obsess over and they also removed her chest tubes. YAY!!!
What a little angel, huh?
Yesterday, my angel of a Mother in Law face timed us during Abby's soccer game, so that we could watch her play (she scored two goals and blocked the other team from scoring a couples goals too), we are so proud of her! We were watching the game from the back of Grace's room in the ICU and when Abby scored her first goal, David thought, maybe she can hear us (from across the soccer field on the phone while face timing), so he yelled "good job Abigail!!!" The nurse cracked up and I'm sure all 29 beds in the CVICU now know that Abigail scored a goal. It was actually pretty cute and funny! We also got to see Andrew playing in the mud at the soccer game (since they had a huge down pour right before the game started) and it was neat to see him having sooo much fun (when he saw us on facetime he didn't know if he should be happy or cry), please pray that the kids finish our time apart strong. Another praise is that since Grace will still be intubated over night (and knocked out to avoid her doing alligator spins with her breathing tube in), David and I will get to have one more night of good sleep in the hotel room together and we will be able to go to church together tonight (Calvary Chapel has a church service in our hotel).
So grateful that our God is sovereign and reigns over all this craziness! :-)
