Good morning everybody,
Today is setting up to be a good day. After 16 long days on the ventilator, the last 4 of which she fought tooth and nail, Paige had her breathing tube removed yesterday!
She is now breathing on a new kind of CPAP machine that goes straight to her nose instead of an uncomfortable mask. She is a completely different and much happier patient off the vent.
The decision to extubate her was not an easy one, as she was on so much sedation that she could potentially stop breathing and have to be reintubated. Her doctors, nurses, pharmacist and several respiratory therapists were divided 50/50 on whether it was a good idea. We ... well, Paige, made it clear she had had enough of the tube. She has sailed since and is impressing her doctors.
At this point she still needs to be weaned off her sedatives, but they have already cut them back enough to cause her to withdrawl, which she has not. Withdrawls, even in babies, can be very intense. It seems she is handling it fine and her pharmacist has laid out an extensive plan to spare her that experience.
Chels was floating yesterday after being able to hold Paige for the first time in more than two weeks. Paige loved it and slept the whole time.
Later, as she was sitting up in bed, Paige saw me and instantly kept grabbing at my nose. I, too, have been floating since.
Paige made a giant leap yesterday and landed on her feet. She still has some challenges ahead.
Thanks everyone for your support. Hope to have more good news soon.
-Chris
