Still holding his own

No More ET tube!

Still intubated and a little puffier

With Grandma Marybelle

With Uncle Geoff

I love Daddy

Connie's had more blood gases and they still look great, despite a few incidents and being pretty uncomfortable. He got suctioned and was not happy with that and dropped his sats and pressure and RR and HR went up. This lasted a few minutes before slowly creeping back up. The nurse says we're no where near reintubating yet so not to get too alarmed. He's needed a second dose of the breathing treatment for stridor and some ativan b/c he doesn't seem in pain, but is definitely quite anxious and more aware of his unusual surroundings. He is asking for his "pod" (iPod), to eat, for help (which means he wants help down off the bed) and saying and signing "all done". He also asked for more when the first episode of Max and Ruby ended. He was definitely paying attention, even though his eyes were closed.
