Weekend hospital happenings

I am sitting in Mia's hospital room waiting for the nurse to pull out her chest tube. There is still a tiny amount of fluid but the doctors are pleased with the result of the procedure. We were given the option to pull the chest tube tonight or tommorow and after her chest x-ray revealed that her chest tube is starting to fall out it was decided to pull it tonight. She will have another chest x-ray tommorow morning and if it looks good we will be on our way home. I can't wait to get home but I am trying not to get my hopes up just in case. Unfortunately I have learned not to get my hopes too high throughout this process. Sad but true. Hopefully tommorow we will be saying goodbye to our overextended hospital stay and this last month will begin to become a distant memory.

I'll be praying that tomorrow will bring you and Mia home! I'll be optimistic for you because I know it's been so hard to be positive all the time and think that finally things are going forward for Mia! What a blessing for Mia though that God knew that she needed you to be her family and get her through this despite the long and hard journey that it's been. I'll be anxiously checking to see if all is well, which I so hope it will be tomorrow!! I'm looking forward to seeing that adorable smile again! Will keep my fingers crossed too that this is the last night there. Hugs!!
