A Quick Update

I spoke with Shawn briefly last night, and Clare's breathing tube was removed around 10 pm, which is earlier than we expected. She was unhappy and in pain, but they held off on giving her morphine because it suppresses respiration. Instead, the nurse gave her tylenol (which is surprisingly effective for pain relief in small children) and was going to monitor her breathing on her own. As of last night, the plan was to have us discharged today. It is just around dawn (thank you, Simon), so that's all the news for now. I am going to head back over there in a little bit. If all goes well, we will be updating once we get home.

That's so great she is already off her breathing tube! I bet Clare's going to get a whole BOX of Krispy Kremes! :) Still thinking of you ~
