So Close . . .

Hi everyone! Abby was not extubated today. She was pretty close but the powers that be did not feel she has enough leakage for the airway. They gave her steroids throughout the day so that the inflammation in her trachea will go down. Goal is to extubate tomorrow. Overall, Abby is doing great and boy is she ready to have that vent out. She had a parade of her fans stopping by from the Nicu and other parts of the hospital to see how she is doing.

That's OK Abby. That nasty old ventilator will be out soon. Keep up the good work. We love you all.

I went up and saw her today on her cute little CPAP. I'm so proud of her. Way to go ABBY!
