The chest tube is OUT!!!

I would like to catch you up on Lindsay's visitors
over the last few days.

Lynn from Parchment Methodist CoOp Preschool stopped to adore God's gift to us.

Pam Wesaw peeking in on Lindsay (by the way, Pam,
I left a picture CD at Ultra Tan and Travel for you!

Maggie Geiger couldn't resist patting Lindsay's precious head. Believe me, our family isn't used to a baby with hair, dark hair at that.

Jeff Wesaw, proud father of three himself, admire Suzie and JR's creation.

It's been a joy to share this experience with all of you sharing this blog with us. The support from you all has been one of life's blessings.

Suzie went over to the hospital earlier this morning and witnessed the pulling of the chest tube. HUGE SUCCESS!!!! They used morphine on Lindsay so she's a little out right now. Don came up this morning so they're having some wonderful father/daughter time. Hopefully Lindsay will wake up so we can get some great holding pictures with grandpa and Lindsay.

Lindsay has to have an echo before discharge and that's set up. Can you believe we're looking at Thursday as a possible release date? Woo Hoo again.......A little scary for Suzie, but she has to get used to trusting her instincts and know her daughter's coloration and normal breathing. It's a huge step to ween yourself from the monitors.

I know that we all have to remind ourselves that we have two more of these to go through, but, it will be so nice to have this one behind us, have a bit of normal at home before coming back.

Heart Hugs,

Congratulations Lindsay on getting your chest tube out. What a mild stone for ALL. How exciting you may get to come home soon to a loving family and friends back here that have been praying for you daily. God is GOOD!!

Suzie I just wanted you to know that Kyle & Kelene Wedding was a beautiful day and now they are enjoying the trip you and Kyle set up for them this week. Thank you for all your work on making their day special.

Our prayers are with you as each day Lindsay gets stronger and stronger and looking forward to coming home. God Bless!!

See you soon!!

In Christ, Steve & Linda

So I was planning to come up and visit you all tomorrow (Wed) - but am thinking now it might not be the best timing? What do you think Linda? I'm just so happy that she might be coming home as early as Thursday. What a blessing.

Hey there...I am still one of the stalkers, but Avery is keeping me from writing as often...he is busy, busy, busy!

Wow, Suzie, this is all such fantastic news, while I am sure a bit overwhelming at the same time. It feels very safe at the hospital, I know. If I have one piece of advice it is to ask every single question you can think of...start a list! No question is too small or silly. We all know you can do this!!

Remember how much we all love you and will be here to help you when you are home just like in Ann Arbor...Love, Elaine
