Check this out! I got to see my boy alert and awake for a brief period this afternoon!!!
Chase had a really wonderful day today! He had his first CPAP trial this evening at 4:00 PM and did a-m-a-z-i-n-g! It was supposed to last for 30 minutes but he ended up going for 40 minutes. His blood gas afterward looked fantastic! The respiratory therapist that did the CPAP told me that he didn't see any reason Chase wouldn't be extubated by NOON TOMORROW!!! Of course he still has another trial tonight at 9:30 PM and again at 3:30 AM, but my hope and prayer is he'll sail through those trials as well and be totally ready to lose that breathing tube tomorrow! WOOT!!!
Please be praying that our little Rock Star will continue to impress us with his incredible recovery. God gets all of the credit here! He made my boy into quite the little stubborn fighter and I couldn't be more grateful!
