God is good!

Since the last update, Kirby has continued to improve. She has now been off the ventilator for 4 days and is growing stronger each day. She is still on the Vapotherm through her nose which provides oxygen and some pressure support. They are slowly decreasing that each day. Her blood gases have been great each day and her O2 sats have been good for her. She slept a good bit the first few days due to her body being tired from getting used to working on its own. The past 2 days she has been more alert and interactive.....we got to see a few big smiles from her yesterday which brought so much joy! We also held her for the first time in 2 months which also was a milestone this week. We have seen miracle after miracle and give God all the praise. We are so thankful for His faithfulness. We don't know where this journey is taking us, but we know our faith is stronger than ever and we can't wait to see how God uses Kirby, as we know He has great plans for her life. Kept the prayers coming....it is working.
