Grace's nurse and I gave Grace a spa treatment today, in an effort to clean her up after getting the electrodes out that were GLUED in!
Lord willing, the plan tomorrow is for Grace to be extubated, which always makes for an adventurous day. In preparation for tomorrow, Grace decided that it would be a good idea to start partying today, so she was squirming all over the place; this wouldn't be such a bad thing if she were not intubated, but being intubated she needs to be still, so David and I were standing by Grace's crib and holding her still (while trying every trick we have to keep her calm) for about two+ hours straight. The nurses were adding all sorts of sedation medication during this time and it took forever for her to respond to it (she is one tough cookie and isn't kept down very easily).
PRAYER REQUEST- Will you please pray that Grace has a peaceful night, her LA (left atrial) pressure remains low, extubation goes seamlessly tomorrow, minimal withdrawls, and that Gracie Doo will bless us with her priceless smile and sweetness right when she wakes up? We have been blessed with the opportunity to encourage and pray for/with a few other families with kiddos in the ICU, will you please pray for peace, strength, and a quick recovery for them too?
Thank you our sweet, sweet, sweet Village for being the most faithful prayer warriors ever!!!
