I'm Still Waiting...

The docs have decided to try a slightly different approach to weaning him this weekend before they give up. There are some kinder gentler ways they can adjust his medications to wake him up. If they feel like they're just aggravating him and wearing him out, they'll stop ASAP. And if it looks like he can't "wake up and wean" through this process, they will do the tracheostomy on Monday.

This poor guy has been through so much. For someone who's been sleeping for 2 weeks, he is DEFINITELY going to wake up exhausted!

Fingers crossed. I found a 4 leaf clover on the hospital lawn. If only luck were that simple...

  2. Hi Nancy - So sorry to hear Alex is going through all of this. If you need anything - stuff delivered to hospital, a ride, whatever, just holler. Take care, Karen Chimento
