Good Morning all! Baby Lilee is moving forward little by little. Erin and I just got out from visiting Lilee this morning. Visually, our poor little girl still looks rough from a mom and dad’s perspective. However, from a doctor’s standpoint, she is progressing very well! It looks like she may be extubated (take her off the breathing machine and remove the breathing tubes) tonight or tomorrow morning. She also just had her first milk since her surgery (through her nose but hey, we’ll take what we can get right?! :o) All in all her doctors and nurses say she’s on a great recovery pace and is moving along as scheduled and expected. Fabulous news!
From Lilee’s view yesterday was pretty slow and uneventful, however, for the rest of us on “Team Lilee” it was a pretty busy day. Grandma and Grandpa Finch headed home yesterday morning to prepare for their church’s huge Christmas dinner this Friday. We also got a surprise visit from Pastor Edwards, Mr. Higgins and his daughter (and my former student) Jessica from Century. Grandpa Frank and I made a quick run home yesterday also. Well it was supposed to be a quick trip but you know how it goes! :o) We were off from Palo Alto to Lodi for laundry, water the grass and a quick check to see if Jack was still kicking. Then it was up to Burson for more laundry and cat checking. From Burson we headed over to Amador County to swap cars with my dad and get our car back from the shop. (Ouch, that’s another blog!) We finally made it back to the hotel at about 10:30 and called it a day… Whew!
It sounds like “I’ll be home for Christmas” may be a reality after all. Thank you Lord! As always, as things develop, we’ll keep you posted. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
