I'm sorry about my last few posts today. It's been a very frustrating and difficult day -- not at all what I had expected.
We got back to the PCICU around 9:30 PM and I was able to speak with his nurse again. After discussing what transpired during shift change this evening, she mentioned a few more details she had left out when I called earlier. Bottom line was she didn't feel as though Chase was truly ready to be extubated and thought it would be best for him to wait. She did admit there was a LOT going on in the unit at the time, which really didn't make me feel any better about her decision, but I'm happy to say Chase is being extubated as I write this. We should be able to see him in a few minutes.
I guess I just wanted to apologize for my negative attitude when writing my posts today. I just haven't been in a good frame of mind after all that's happened today. Please forgive me!
