Please Pray

Just after we got back from the OR, the Attending made the decision to try and extubate Luke. He has been on so many drugs to keep him paralyzed and sedated, that he become intermittently apnic (kept forgetting to breathe). They immediately re-intubated him, but at some point Luke's right lung collapsed and he crashed. O2 sats were very low for a long time. They had to do chest compressions. They have started him on nitric oxide. Right now he is somewhat stable. We're very shaken and scared. All of our parents are on their way back to Dallas. We thank you for your prayers.
