Zack was extubated this morning!!! The procedure was very quick and in seconds the breathing tube was gone, thanks to Debbie, his respiratory therapist, and Dr. Needle, aka Zack's Extubation Dream Team. More later...

I feel better already! I can't imagine how you feel. This is most excellent news to report back to all the kids dreading that first day of school. This is such good news that I bet all the kids will forget that they are supposed to hate going back to school.

I am pulling for you every day.

Zack ...

As sure as pig ears are delicious ...

As sure as dogs are cooler than cats ...

As sure as going to the vet is the worst way to spend a morning ... and chasing sticks on the beach is the best way to spend an afternoon ...

As sure as Maya has bad breath ... and Mocha has bad sight.

As sure as you have caused our tails to wag ...

And as sure as you are the toughest guy around.

As sure as all of these things ...

... we knew you could do this.

Love,

Mocha and Maya (a.k.a. Mandy)
