Extubation

Stink face!
Will's extubation went great.  It was hard for me to watch, but I needed to be there for him and I'm glad I was.  He was clearly aggitated as they were doing it.  I can't blame him: they were pulling a tube out of his throat.  At one point the doctor was saying, "you need to stay awake, Will!" and he gave her the worst stink face ever!  He has been breathing on his own for almost an hour now, and all of his numbers have been perfect the whole time.  He is glad to have that thing out!  I keep trying to give him a paci (it's important to get him sucking again), but he doesn't want it!  He looks at me like, "No, mom!  My mouth is finally empty and I want to keep it that way!" 
Extubation







    As soon as they've seen a good trend after his extubation, they'll remove his PICC line.  He'll love that, too, because he is dying to move his left arm.  Maybe he is a lefty like Mom?




I'm free!!

Hi Will, we're your parents!  What?  Is this not what you expected?
