Extibation results in big struggles......
At 11:45am the docs decided that it was as good a time as any to try for extibation. Little Bug did amazingly well and coughed very quickly after the tube was pulled. We got him all cleaned up and mama held him for 2 straight hours. At 1:45pm it was quite evident that Connor was having a tough time getting breath and he was getting aggitated. I put him back up in bed and the docs and respitory therapists tried everything to help him calm down and breathe. We were, however, not successful. He ended up getting a bunch more drugs, morphine, adovan, versett (sp??), chloralhydrate and the like!!!!!!!! He is on an oxygen canula at the moment with 100% oxygen and the drugs are kicking in for him to fall asleep. Who knows how this will filter down in the whole grand scheme of things, but he is definately riding the fence on getting the breathing tube back in. Please continue to pray!!!!!!!!!!!
