Finally Extubated

28/4/08 Skyla was finally extubated today. It took alot longer than expected as her xrays have been pretty shocking. There is alot of scar tissue all over her lungs. The Drs have said that if she needs to be intubated again she will have to have a tracheostomy which is the breathing tube in the neck. This is because her lungs are really bad as she has chronic lung disease. The Drs think will happen really soon.
29/04/08 Today Skyla had a pretty good day, she had a nice bath and we weighed her. She now weighs 4.4kg. Not much of a gain but considering how sick she has been, she did really well in that respect. She is still on the cpap mask. She did have one episode of desating today. She dropped to 59% She come up pretty quick luckily her little episode only lasted about 10min.
