PICU Day 10 and 11

I went home overnight.
Now Ben's giving me the cold shoulder.
(not really)
He's just tired.
They have been working him HARD.
Yesterday they took him off the vent for 4 hours.
That's all he could handle.
Today he went 9 hours.
He's beat!
It's hard work breathing ALL by yourself.
Tomorrow we'll stretch him longer,
which means that we could possibly head home Monday.
Hooray for progress!!!

Man that boy, when he crashes he crashes hard. No oxygen at home to the vent, sheesh. Come on buddy, you can do it.
