This morning in rounds the doctors decided that they probably shouldn't change anything today except lower his sedation drip a tiny bit. To help clear the muddy water about the vent... The tube is out! But they are using the ventilator to give him pressure through a cannula in his nose. The cannula is similar to what he uses at home, just larger. He still has fevers but with around the clock Tylenol it has at least been in check (mostly). We are so thankful that he has been able to keep the breathing tube out.
