A picture to tide you over.....


It is nice to see the tubes gone from the chest. Tomorrow they will attempt to lay off some of the sedation and work on weaning the ventilator. It usually takes, they say, 3 days to get off the vent and much longer to get off all the drugs he is on. He will go through withdrawl as most are narcotics. (and when I say alot, I mean ALOT!!!) He has had two open hearts before and both with the same drugs so it took more of them each time.....ALOT of them.
We have an awesome nurse tonight who has been our nurse several nights ....so I will get good rest again tonight.
Keep the prayers coming....they are definately being heard.

It is so GREAT to read your posts, I can just hear your spirit being lifted -- and mine is too! This is all so awesome. I am so happy for all of you....just when you think God is not paying attention to us...He shows up..he is always right on time, just not our time. Yea!!!!!! I will still be praying, but this is awesome news!

Hi there. Just wanted to let you know we're still praying for Tuck! Glad you are finally getting some sunshine here in Boston. I bet ya thought you landed in Seattle for a while, eh? Hoping to visit you this weekend if you are up for it!
Glad Tucker is progressing so well. Love that he's getting rid of more and more wires each day! Yeah.
