So the Vent is off.
31 days on the vent.
Now one day off.
We are by no means out of the woods. She needs to remain stable over night. This David and Goliath is a 12 round fight...not a one stone throw.
So we sit and wait.
We stare at a screen of numbers, hoping respiratory rates remain stable...heart rates remain stable...blood pressures remain stable...pulse-oxes remain stable. So far so good.
Meet Goliath 1
Affectionately known as R2D2, Chaia just beat the tar out of this Goliath. May he Rest in Peace.
Here are just a couple pics from the rest of the afternoon/evening.
Chaia was a little wild with her heart rate and breathing after extubation, but a little bit of mama holdin' her and a bit of dad playing guitar and she was back down where she should be.
David 1...Goliath 0
Round Two going on right now.
Chaia wins when we kneel...its not a catchy phrase, it is the irrefutable truth.
Please don't stop.
