A Big Step Forward!

Mason had a good night. He passed 2 spontaneous trials on the vent and his labs looked good after, so they extubated (took out the breathing tube) him around 9am! Yeah! He is much happier. But, he still seems uncomfortable and they have come down on pain meds, weaning him so they can move us up to the 3rd floor soon. The best part of the day is that I got to hold him (thanx to Jean, Mason's favorite RN!) and feed him (they decided to skip the swallow study.). He did not want the bottle though, he wanted it straight from the source! He's a stubborn little guy. This now may make it difficult to go home at night. I will post pictures from the last few days later, I haven't been able to get it to work.

Happy to hear that prayers have been answered and that he is more comfortable. What a miracle!
