The TUBE comes out tonight

The nurses are allowed to take her tube out tonight after 6:00!!  Today they will level out her bed, it has been head down so the spinal fluid wouldn't leak. Then they will try putting her head up for a bit. Then they'll take her tube out and let her wake up.  She has been waking up several times a day, but then they give her more meds and out she goes. They took her catheter out last night!  So, we are making progress. We hope to be home Tuesday if she does well.  
We did take all the kids in to see her yesterday. They were so glad to see her!!!  They all begged on Friday and I told them no, but they wouldn't let up!  So, yesterday we let them in to see her.
They did really well. No one got upset.  They did ask lots of questions, but that is ok!  We were worried that it would scare Kaylea. She and Rubea have their *big* surgery the first week in January!!  
Off to do a few chores and get back for the surgery!!
Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes!!
