We are so happy to post that she is not on the ventilator and she is breathing on her own with only 1 liter of oxygen. Immediately after the tube was pulled she reached for the wet wash cloth I had been using to wipe her little face and began trying to get a drink from it. She is so smart! She knew I had put water on it and she was thirsty. We quickly began to wet her "pink" sticks so that she could have drink. I wish you could have seen the smile in Blake and Allison's eyes. (they were wearing masks so you couldn't see the smile on their faces) It really will be a wonderful Christmas for them. They are so happy to see her smile without the tube in her throat. All of the excitement has been very exhausting for her so she is now napping.
My heart is full of gratitude. The smile has yet to leave my face. He is good and He blesses us each day with so much more than we deserve. We have Ashley and we have Allie and we have Blake and that is all we need to celebrate the birth of the One who gave so very much. God is good and we are thanking Him for our "Christmas miracle".
