Ramsey was extubated and everything is looking great so far! He is breathing well, crying a bit, and when he does cry, it sounds good for someone that has had a tube in for so long. I held him after extubation for about an hour. They just took another gas and it was awesome! His CO2 is 42 (within the normal range). His PH is 7.4. He now has a high flow nasal cannula and will eventually be transferred to the regular canula.
It's funny, it almost seems like he was just born. There is so much excitement here, and hearing him cry for the first time was wonderful. I took some video since Dennis was unable to make it in in time for the extubation. I will see if I can post it on here for you to see! I can't wait for Dennis and all to see and hear him!!
