Abigail and Andrew were so excited to have their mommy home today. They went to church this morning, had lunch, and then unexpectedly went to the airport (best surprise ever for them)!!!
Grace has done pretty well today, although not much changed for her today. They figured out a better sedation strategy for the day. The nurse was laughing because she was saying that Grace gets so much sedation and that if any adult had just one of the sedation meds it would knock them out, but Grace is on four different types of sedation and barely knocks out. The plan for tomorrow is to go ahead and extubate Grace, but leave her Left Atrial line (which goes directly into her heart to monitor her left pressures) in, so that they can see how her LA pressures do without her being sedated and intubated. This way, if her LA pressures go up because she is awake and not sedated, then it gives them a better picture that her mitral valve probably just needs to be replaced. Please pray that the doctors know what the right plan should be after Grace is extubated tomorrow. We know that it will be God's will whatever the plan is, so please also pray that God aligns our hearts and minds with His plan.
Thanks for all of your prayers for our Sweet Little G-Dog!
