Quick Update

Just thought that you would like to know that Victoria was extubated early yesterday afternoon, and she did really well.  They did give her high flow oxygen overnight...gradually decreasing the amount of O2 in the air flow, and this morning they removed that, and her oxygen level is staying stable...99 to 100 mostly
They have just moved us out of the PICU, and we are now up on the 7th floor in a smaller room with a really nice city views go...we can see both the capitol and a big cathedral from our window.
We are now in room number 7324 and our new phone number is 651-312-3161.  If you end up calling the old one, they may be able to transfer you...and I think that with our name on mail it will find its way up here, as well.  Victoria has been here long enough, she is getting well known.

Up on the seventh floor, they were not comfortable with Victoria's external drain being the she has been re wrapped...looks like a little helmet.  The things you see on her face are all relics...of various tape jobs, and glue which helps the tape to stick...and the special sticky things that held the high flow O2 in place. 

We appreciate you all so much...thanks for your continued prayers on our behalf! 

"Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.  Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness."  Ps. 97:11,12


  1. Thanks for the update. We r praying for all of you. p

  2. Victoria looks so cute with her "helmut" Her facial expression seems to say- Hey (that's a Canadian word you may not have taught her yet) what do you folks think you are doing??? How precious are these little ones to our Lord.
    We praise God for the blessing of each day- thankful today that Victoria is breathing on her own and from the picture looking relatively comfortable. Hugs Jean
