Suprise Suprise!

It has been about 2 weeks since mariskas surgery. Friday the 3oth they were talking about changing the size of her breathing tube that goes into her throat and they said they were going to take the tub completly out just to give her a try telling us that they dont expect her to do well at all without the breathing Tube and for us Not to Expect Much. The Reason why they were saying this was because that had ealier taken x-rays and found that her Right Diaphram is Paralized which dosent allow her right lung to expand fully. Even though this was the case We Really Didnt Want to listen to the doctors and we decided because she was having a difficult time we should give her a name and blessing which we did the saturday the 1st which just happened to be the night before they were going to change out the tube and test her. On sunday Morning they took the tube out to see how she would do and when we talked to the doctors they said she was doing Great! All the Doctors were suprised and didnt expect her to do as well as she was doing so they asked us to wait a day before we could hold her. It has been now Well passed a day since then and We have now held her many times. The Doctors say that she is doing Good. Although her Diaphram is still paralized she is doing good. They say she is breathing fast but this is normal because kids with this condition go home breathing fast anyways. They Said they dont know for sure how much her parlyized diaphram is contributing to the fast breathing and say we will just have to wait and see if it heals fast or slow. Her Nurse has explained that they expect to be taking the Oxeygon down and that she will go out of the PICU Tomorrow the 5th of Dec. Hopefully this is the case and mariska will Continue to improve, But the way she has progressed thus Far We expect her to continue and We Pray Come Home Soon. We Thank All of you for your Prayers and Support. Sam & Melynda
