Could tomorrow be the big day?

>> Thursday, July 16, 2009

I can't believe I am about to type these words........ Kamryn might be extubated from the vent as soon as tomorrow morning! I think we are in shock right now. Now, it is important to say that the moon and stars have to be in the right alignment along with a thousand other things tonight, but if all goes as planned they are going to give it a try.

They have not changed her vent settings from yesterday, but her CO2 is still in the low 50's and she is pretty much at 21% oxygen which is the same as room air. They have stopped her diuretic so she has to do well overnight and not retain fluid (one of those thousand things). We don't have a specific time other than "in the morning".

Tomorrow will be 31 days in the NICU and we hope we can finally see our precious girl with no tubes in her mouth. Please pray that tonight goes well and everything is successful tomorrow. I promise to post just as soon as possible after we know in the morning. I'm too excited to type anymore tonight which is probably a good thing for all of you who read this on your blackberry :)

I highly recommend an iPhone. That, along with TIVO, has changed my life.

YES! But do not be surprised if they have to reintubate - it isn't abnormal at first. But something tells me this little one likes to shock and awe ;-)...

With thoughts, prayers and Lung Function Chants,
