The tube is out and he is awake! Last night they successfully extubated Ammon. Everything looks super and he is donig very well. He will move out of PICU some time today. He is smiling from ear to ear today. He's still a bit groggy. Dr. Smith said it will take a couple of days for all the medication to wear off. He doesn't appear to be in any pain. Tylenlol seems to be sufficient at this point.
He is on room air so he doesn't need supplemental oxygen and his blood gases were perfect today. The blood gas levels are one of the reasons he was put on a ventilator so we are watching those very carefully. All things are good today. He is soooo happy!
