Emily spent just under 24 hours on the ventilator. Around noon on Saturday they had lowered her pain meds so that she would be awake enough to do the extubation. She did great after the tube came out!!! She was breathing fine on her own and has been ever since!
Her g-tube site looks great too. She started getting fed through her new tube last night, just pedialyte, and this morning they started her on her formula. She is tolerating it very well so far, although she is only getting a teensy bit continuously. So we just need to give it some time and see how she does as we increase her feeds until they are back to normal.
She had a good night last night, and they will probably be moving her back down to the post-surgery floor later today.
Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers and keep them coming! :)
