So Yale was extubated today... so far so good... he has had a few episodes where he succumbs to his secretions and needs a little help.... but so far so good :) Its so strange now when he cries that his eyes go all red.... he used to just turn blue and then go white... it's pretty cool... He it totally fine neurologically... grasping at sponges and he gulped down the wee 10 mls he was allowed to have to eat today... and is willing to take his meds orally. What a little champ he is... in between dozing from the morphine and crying because he needs another dose of morphine... he has been a happy little guy... a little more irritated than usual...but the guy just had a heart trasnplant and now they're barely feeding him.... you'd be irritated too!
Everyone warned me that it would just be different this time... I was expecting him to be sooo swollen and to take a long time to become active again... but here we are three days post op and he's practically jumping out of his crib... :)
Seriously... WOW... its all I have to say..
