Felt very encouraged after rounds this morning. We just took out his pacemaker wires. We are turning down his Milranone (heart med) and it will go off at 4:00. Heparin came off last night. Oxygen flow down from 7 to 5 liters/min. Nitric is still off . Sats are staying pretty much in the 90%s. Heart rate and respiration rate are still a little high, but seem to be improving. Physical therapy came this morning and made him walk from his bed to the hallway and back. It touched my heart that Dr. Tia knelt in the hallway and cheered him on. Luke hated every second of his little walk, but once it was over and he was back in bed, his whole attitude is different. He's smiling some, talking more, and whining less. After a really difficult day yesterday (whining and crying constanly), we needed some wins today. Now if we could just get Luke to sleep for more than 45 min at a time, we would be well on our way back to normal. Thank you all for your prayers and love.
