A quick update... we've been told that there's a good chance the tube will come out today at 2pm. They have taken every precaution and it seems like they are at the point where they will just do it. At this point we're hoping, but we'll have to see at that time. Please pray that her airway is able to keep itself open and they aren't forced to do any emergency procedures to reopen it.
The sedation is a little lighter today and she is looking quite comfortable. The nurse braided her hair into two ponytails this morning which looked quite nice.
I'll try to update again this afternoon saying whether or not the tube came out, and how that went.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Kate, and your families. I'm and very glad to hear that there is progress in the positive direction and we know Kate is a real fighter so she won't give up. Gord also wanted to send his best, since he especially remembers Kate's energtic personality from the wedding. We send out best wishes and continue to pray.

We are trusting that God will make the path clear for the tube removal this afternoon. We are continuing to pray and will focus our prayers on 2pm today.

We'll be praying that 2:00 is a go and the inflammation is down enough that the airway behaves as it should. They must be pretty confident that she is strong enough overall to take this next step and that in itself is good news.
Blessings, Bruce and Cindy

We'll be thinking of and praying for both of you at 2PM (and for all the days that follow, until all this is finally over)! It's wonderful to keep hearing of how Kate keeps taking steps forward every day.

There will likely be an official update soon, however the latest news is that the Tube is out, and Kate is speaking a bit. Great news all around!
