Plan to extubate already
20/2/08 Skyla was still abit unsettled today. They did how ever manage to wean her vent down alot. They also weaned her morphine down from 50 to 20 and also weaned down the midaz. Not that they helped her much as she is pretty immune to it all as she has pretty much been on morphine for about 13wks of her life. She is now 18 1/2wks old. So hopefully we can get her off it asap as she does get withdrawals. They plan to extubate her tomorrow. I wasnt expecting this so soon but its great news. I was expecting her to be on it for atleast a week, so the sooner the better, just as long as she is ready. She is very swollen in the face today. Her eyes are very puffy too. She has these beautiful Angelina Jolie lips. They are so cute. Her top lip is swollen for her lip tie that they cut yesterday in her op. Other than that she had a great day. They didnt worry about an arterial line. As long as her sats are ok and being on the vent they can monitor her CO2. They will probably do a gas in a day or two just to make sure. So hopefully she will have a great night tonight and be extubated tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
