Mary update

Mary was extubated today, despite having another seizure last night. Ryan even got to pull the tube out, which Mary was very excited about, but I think Ryan was even more excited! She has been doing well all day, keeping her O2 sats at 99-100 on room air both on and off bipap. She has had more secretions than normal, probably because of the irritaion from the tube. Her speech has taken a little longer to come back, but her voice is becoming more understandable. It sounds like she is talking with a very sore throat.

Mary is in good spirits and has been asking when we can get out of the hospital. The sweetest moment of the night....
Mary and Kate were talking about the events of last Saturday night and Mary said out of the blue "Mommy, I forgive you" and then she said "daddy, I forgive you too". This totally caught us off guard and we didn't really know what to say. We just gave her a big hug and tried to hold back the tears. It is really amazing how deep and absolutely amazing Mary's mind is!

We love that little girl!
