Another day to give thanks

Today we are thankful for:

-The millions of prayers that are being said....
-grandmas and grandpas who came to visit....
-the neurologist giving us a glimmer of hope by telling us the swelling should go away and there might not be permanent damage.
-Mary getting LOTS of rest today....
-each other (I LOVE YOU KATE)
-my work, which has been absolutely 100% supportive
-our friends and neighbors who are watching Jackson
-clear lungs....
-no seizure activity on the follow-up EEG

I could go on and on.

The plan right now is to prepare Mary for extubation at 10:00 tomorrow. Everything has to go right tonight and in the morning, but we are praying that she will be ready. Please continue to pray for mary's strength and pray that she will be awake and ready to extubate and breath on her own in the morning.
