Blessings upon blessings

Luke had an excellent night! Can you believe it?? No suctioning! His o2 sats stayed very stably in the mid 80%s. Luke has been smiling almost constantly since he woke up from sedation yesterday. He's even teasing us like his old self. He has the shakes very badly, which is the only withdrawal symptom that he is exhibiting. The plan for today is to continue weaning him off of his sedation and pain meds, balance his comfort while weaning him off of his narcotics, change his continuous G-tube feedings to four "meals", and move him off of the PICU down to the cardiology floor. We're hoping to be home sometime Sunday or Monday. We love you all and thank you for your continued prayers.
