10/13/06 - NICU Day #11

Nurses: Kristi, Maria

  • The chest tube came out this morning. His MAP is 32 and he rested comfortably all night.
  • His settings were weaned to 20/5 overnight. His gas was good at 6:30 AM but no changes were made in the vent because the chest tube was removed. They'll keep weaning him throughout the day and watching for him to breathe more on his own.
  • Feeds are still off until his ventilation improves.

I'm glad to hear that Daniel is doing well after the procedure (from what I can glean from the doctor-speak). I hope you two are doing OK during what must be a very trying period. And I'm glad to hear that Joseph is still Joseph (re the stool comment).
