Look! No oxygen!

Things have happened very quickly today. I went back to the hotel to take a nap after staying with Luke last night. When I got back, they had completely weaned Luke off of oxygen and taken off his nasal cannula. His new chest drainage tube stopped yielding, and his X-ray this morning looked crystal clear, so they took out the tube this afternoon. Once it was out, they started making plans for us to move down to the regular patient floor tomorrow. Then a bed was ready this afternoon, and Dr. Kao gave the thumbs up for us to move today. We took Luke for a wagon ride and found all our stuff moved out when we came back. So now we're on the regular patient floor. If his X-ray and labs all look good tomorrow morning, we're going to push to take him home tomorrow. Soooooo ready to go home, but DON'T TELL THE BABY! (We're still a little superstitious.)
Approx 10 pm

Luke's sats were running a little low (low to mid 70%s) when I left tonight. Don't really feel confident about being on the floor and not in CHSU with that going on. Please pray that Luke will continue to get better and not worse so we can go home tomorrow or Sunday.
