Still not able to remove the breathing tube. Scott either can't breath easily on his own or has too much fluid it in his lungs, based on x-rays (the two are probably related). He has also been having some anxienty, either based on food or diaper changing, or pain from the surgery. He is consoled easily, but it is hard to see him be uncomfortable. Since we had hoped he would be breathing on his own and possible in the nursery by now it has been a disapppointing day. The doctors and nurses assure us he is still doing well and within acceptable timelines for his age and condition. The plan for tomorrow is to get him transferred to the nursery (they didn't have any room today) where they will be more aggressive in getting his breathing tube removed and having him progress as a regular premature baby. All tests on his heart have been normal so focussing on his prematurity seems like the right move. Stay tuned..
