Luke had a pretty rough night, de-satting after every breathing treatment and taking an hour of bagging to get his sats back up. Early this morning, Luke started mobilizing his secretions and being able to cough some stuff up and out of that collapsed lung. I went to the hotel to sleep for a few hours this morning and came back to a different baby. He is still using a little bit of nitric oxide
, but they are weaning that every two hours, and he is using NO extra oxygen. Sats are in the high 70%s to low 80%. Heart rate and blood pressure are very well in hand. The plan is to continue to wean his nitric and his ventilator settings and keep him stable (no more dropped lungs!). The Attending set the goal of trying to re-extubate Luke on Friday. Thank you so much for your prayers and your support.
