Quick Update

Happy Monday! This is going to be brief, but I wanted to make sure I let you guys know what's going on today. I just spent a couple of hours hanging out with Ethan and he slept the whole time! His nurse said he wasn't quite that nice last night and early this morning, however. The medications are completely out of his system, so when he is awake he is MAD. I'd have to imagine I would be pretty ticked off with a tube down my throat, too.

The plan is to extubate today. He is being watched very closely and is currently on a type of CPAP. This means he isn't fully ventilated, but is still receiving some pressure support to keep his lungs from collapsing. This is a step towards taking him off of the vent. I'm not exactly sure when they plan to extubate, so stay tuned! Pray, pray, pray that this time is a success. Pray the bleeding does not become problematic and that this tube can come out and stay out!

On a bit of a different note, my laptop is on the fritz so internet access is going to be a little more difficult to come by. I will try to update later on this afternoon if/when I can!

All our love,
-Joye, Jeramie, and Ethan
