WEANING OFF THE VENT
Witt is still on the ventilator. Any second we should hear from the cardiologist about when the cardiac cath test will be. In the meantime respiratory will begin to wean Witt from the ventilator. If the procedure is tomorrow he will remain on the vent but with the settings low. If the procedure is scheduled later in the week they will try to extubate him. When his sedation wears off he opens those beautiful eyes and looks at you! This morning he even tried to smile with all the tape on his face. For now he is still being sedated so he is not in pain and doesn't fight the tubes. Please pray that his lungs respond well to turning the ventilator down!!
