Scott gave his dad a bit of a scare last night when he self-extabated. Phil was staying overnight with him in the ICU and around 10:30pm his breathing tube came out. Fortunately, his nurse was right there when it happened but it was still chaotic for awhile as the nurses and doctors had to re-intabate him. I was asleep at home and happy to have missed the event!
He was good again today - the x-rays showed more fluid in his lungs so they decided to leave him on the ventilator for another day or two. The doctors would ideally like his lungs dry before taking him off the breathing machine. They were able to take out 3 drainage tubes today which should make him more comfortable and help with his breathing. He also starting getting breast milk again which we thought was a good sign. Phil and I feel like he is stable enough so we aren't spending the night tonight. The ICU is not a very restful place to be!
We so appreciate all your emails, calls, cards, comments on the blog - it's great knowing how many people are thinking about Scott!!
