2 Hours Post Extubation
Ellie is maintaining well off the ventilator! Her vitals are looking good and her blood gases (for those who know about them) are "looking great". All this to say, she did not have to put the BiPAP mask on and breathed on regular mask until 2:55 at which time the 2nd blood gases revealed she could be placed on a nasal canula for oxygen!
She is pretty weak, however, as sweet as always -- John had to leave for a moment and on his return Ellie gave a big wide eyed "Hey Daddy!" Sarah said it was the best voice and best look yet!
Thank you again for your prayers and love to us.
