9:15 PM Update - Fri.
Cool looking plant on the U of M grounds
What a gorgeous day today! When Jeff came tonight with SaraGrace and Jordan, we were able to take Katie-bug outside! This is what she thought of it...
She warms up slowly to new activities. :) It's a bit of a hassle getting her into a wheelchair because we have to get a portable oxygen tank, carry her drain tube collector, navigate all her tubes, and take her IV cart with us. So, despite the fact that she was NOT enjoying her little excursion outdoors, I made her stay out there. After awhile she warmed to the idea and started to play with Jordan and SaraGrace.

Making silly monster faces

Kisses for big sister, SaraGrace
Our hopes of going home on Sunday may be a bit optimistic. Her wound vac was not quite ready to come off, so that might be 2-3 more days. Her oxygen levels continue to be too low and have not improved at all today. They will re-evaluate her chest tube, but it doesn't look likely that it will come out tomorrow. Her spirits are good, so I am thankful for that. :)
