OFF THE VENTILATOR!!!

Witt is off the ventilator!!! He had 2 pressure support trials today and it was decided to extubate him! He is loving his pacifier and now he can move around in the bed some. Also his poor cheeks have a bad rash from the tape that is used to secure the tube. Respiratory uses all sorts of skin guard trying to find something that is easy on his skin. It seems no matter what is used Witt eventually develops a bad rash. You can see on his face where the circles of tape are placed. We have been told that surgery to replace the valve will be sometime next week but I don't think that is official yet. Please pray that Witt continues to breathe easy on his own and remains off the vent until surgery.

Bless his little cotton pickin cheeks! How can I pinch them if they are screaming red like that? Awwww. I'm so glad he was able to get off the vent. May he enjoy some healthy days in prep for the surgery. I'll continue to pray. Hugs from Poetry! ~Mindy
