Today is day 28....Ramsey has been with us 4 weeks. Today, they are hoping to finally extubate him (remove the breathing tube connected to the vent)!!! His morning gases were excellent so they lowered his oxygen. If his noon gases are still good, they will do it! It will be such a milestone to have him off the vent...and it will be so odd to finally hear him cry.
They will increase his feeds every 12 hours and reduce his morphine soon.
I pray that he tolerates all of these changes and that he enjoys life without the vent!!
