They will probably remove the other drainage tube tomorrow or Tuesday and they are going to start weaning her from the blood pressure medicine she is on. They are also going to continue weaning her from the ventilator and I am guessing they will try and take the breathing tube out one day this week. I like that they do everything slowly because it gives Hope time to get used to everything before they remove them from her. I get excited thinking that maybe this week or next we will be able to start working on her feeding with a bottle. She has been sucking on the breathing tube and she loved her pacifier, so I am hoping she will love her bottle too.
Jerry is starting back to work tomorrow after bring off for 3 weeks on FMLA. It has been hard without his paycheck and we checked into it and he will be able to take more FMLA time if anything comes up with Hope. I know I am going to need him when she first comes home and definitely when she has her second surgery in a few months.
Our entire family is so thankful for everything everyone has done to support us these past 3 weeks. We know we are going to need a lot more help as we try to get a schedule together and we are thankful for our families extending us their help. Words cannot express how thankful and grateful we are to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and help!
