Hope was pretty awake for a few hours today. Of course, the batteries in my camera died before she woke up, so I couldn't take pictures. She responded really well to me talking to her, but the nurses again decided that she might be in pain so they gave her some more morphine to make her feel better and go back to sleep. I love spending time with her when she is awake and recognizing my voice. I can't wait for her breathing tube to be taken out so I can hear her cry. It will be the sweetest sound!
Tomorrow is probably the 'big' day for the breathing tube to be taken out. I am hoping there won't be any problems when they try to take it out. Please keep Hope in your prayers tomorrow that there are no problems when they take out the breathing tube and that she breathes perfectly afterward and her blood pressure remains good and her oxygen saturation stays where it should. I know it is a BIG prayer request, but there are so many things that need to happen all at once when they remove the breathing tube. It has basically been breathing for her for over a week and now she will need to do all the work herself. I am just praying extra hard that she is strong enough and will not have any problems.
