Weekend Update

This morning we were happy to see that Julianne was awake! We've been here over an hour and she's still awake!  She wasn't even this awake before her surgery.

So, a few news and notes: They're still weaning her off the narcotics (morphine, etc) with methodone that will transition her into some tylenol. On the ventilator, she's down to 8 breaths per minute, which is 4 points better than last night!  She may be out of the ICU by the end of next week.  Last night, she got put into her first crib, as opposed to the little bed that she's been in.  And as we speak, she is staring at her new stuffed dog that we got her. Everything is going great!  Thanks for all the prayers!!

That is fantastic news!!!! She looks soooo adorable in her photos. Just know you all are constantly in our prayers. We can't wait to have you all home!!!

Just a P.S. note, Uncle Jim is following the blog, but he can't write back via work. However, I'll never be first because he doesn't run to the computer the first thing in the morning..... : )So he just wanted you to know that he is keeping abreast of what's going on!!!

We love you!!
See you soon!!
