Everything is proceeding slow and steady. There have been minor ups and downs since the surgery but all in all, Ramsey is doing good. We had some concern over a miscommunication yesterday regarding the diaphragm. We were under the impression that because his diaphragm was so small and the repair was so large, that it could hinder his recovery. Fortunately, we were reassured that the patch will ensure that it functions properly. The only real concern with the patch might be a re-herniation, but that would be in the distant future and it could be a relatively easy fix compared to what he has already gone through.
They might attempt to switch him back to the conventional vent today. I hope he transitions well.
