Breathing tube is out!

Noelle was extubated about 20 minutes ago and she was SO happy to get that thing out of her! When the doctor asked her if she wanted to get her breathing tube out Noelle gave her a huge smile and nodded her head.

Now that she is able to talk she keeps asking us "Did I have my surgery yet?" and when we tell her yes then she smiles and says "Yay!". She's pretty frustrated though and wants to get out of bed. She was upset that she can't walk yet.

She had a good night but today they are having some difficulty keeping her blood pressure and heart rate down. She also has a bit of a high temperature but hopefully the tylenol will kick in soon.

Joel and I are tired but doing well overall. Zach has been busy having fun with grandparents, his aunt and cousins. They all went to the zoo this morning. I miss my little Zman, though I know he is being well cared for and loved!

PRAISE GOD! And I love that she is SO ready to just get on with it. Come on -- I have to lay in this bed? I've got better things to do! hahaha

Even though I've never met her, I feel like she would be one of my fave little girls in the whole wide world!!! I love you guys and miss you!!

So glad to hear she is doing so well!! We'll continue to keep you all in our prayers. Looking forward to hearing that you are all home again! She is quite a little trooper. God Bless!

I love, "Did I have my surgery yet?" A little relief to a mommy's heart...she doesn't remember a thing. Praying for that heart rate to stabilize and thanking God for the amazing strength HE's given her and you all.

Dear Jennifer & Joel,
I had no idea Noell was having surgery at Liz's BBQ. It sounds like she is a very strong little girl and you have many people praying for all of you. We will see you when you get back home.
