HOME AND DOING WELL!
Jim and I just landed back in Houston. We headed straight to Mel's and Austan's and more importantly Witt's!!! He is doing quite well. His blood gas test done in the ER showed all his levels are good. We will never know how long Witt's tube was disconnected but whats most important is that he is doing good and there appears to be no long term effects. I can't imagine what last night must have been like for Melanie and Austan...to wake up to Witt's alarms going off, a tube disconnected from the ventilator and Witt pale and very limp. Austan said that by the time the paramedics got there Witt had finally moved a couple of fingers but that was it. Austan also told me that he had to drive his car while Mel went with Witt in the ambulance and that he wasn't sure what he would face when he got to the hospital. What Austan didn't know was that during the ambulance ride, Witt took the pacifier out of his mouth and smiled at the paramedic! Witt has bounced back quickly and my prayer is that Melanie and Austan are able to do so also. They were blaming themselves for not hearing the alarms sooner. Tonight Jim and I are spending the night with them. Hopefully they will get some much needed sleep!
