Bad night so far
Unfortunately I don't have good news to report. They planned on extubating as soon as Will woke up, but our poor little man was bleeding a lot, had a fever, and his Sats were very low. He is so feisty he was fighting all of the sedatives; kicking and silent crying and that didn't help anything. I begged for all the sedatives and pain meds he could get because he was miserable. Finally they gave him morphine. He had an X-ray which showed a partially collapsed lung, so they paralyzed him (they want him to stop fighting the ventilator) and are just waiting to see what happens now.
