but, it's time for me to go to lunch. I'll tell you more later.
hee hee - that was fun.
ok now here's a real, full update:
When I got to the hospital last night for my daily Caleb time, the good doctor had just finished pulling out Caleb’s central line. Caleb was awake looking around like nothing had happened.
He is so pink now. I love having him off the IV fluids!
His antibiotics will be stopped soon. Then, he won't need his IV (which is on top of his head now)!
The good doctor said he would like to get Caleb off the respirator today. But, the good doctor's shift ended yesterday. :(
I will talk to the respiratory therapists when I get there today. If Caleb is still doing well, I don't know why they would wait to take him off the respirator.
The good doctor said they will let Caleb tell them if he needs to go on the CPAP or if he can skip to a cannula. As soon as he is back on the cannula, they will go back to giving him some oral feeds.
Happy St Patrick's Day!
