Mary has a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!!!

Well, we wanted to post some pictures of Mary in the hospital since she is feeling SO much better today! She woke up this morning and she was smiling, even with her mask on!! She was a lot more into playing and eating today as well. And the best news of all . . . the doctors said we may go home tomorrow as long as Mary does well tonight!! Today we finally switched her over to her home BiPAP ventilator, so we were very excited because it works so much better for Mary than the big BiPAP in the hospital that is made for adults.

Mary was feeling so good, she played with all of her switch toys. Here is a picture of her playing with the talking Elmo that daddy adapted to a switch for her. Notice that Elmo is wearing a BiPAP mask and a blood pressure cuff just like Mary!!!

Mary even got a bath today! Here is a picture of her and mommy right before her bath. You can tell her hair was getting a little greasy!!

And the best thing of all, Mary had a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!!! As you can see they were the real-live Santa and Mrs. Claus visiting direct from the North Pole. They made a special trip to visit all the little boys and girls in the hospital!
