Today the PICU Team decided to take away his pressure support and leave him just on his peep for as long as he'll tolerate it. Hopefully he'll wean a little better going this route. He'll go back on his pressure support with the peep overnight and hopefully be on just the peep all day and over night. Once he does that, they'll wean him off the vent. It's a slow process, sometimes painfully slow. They have started him back on his percussion vest to help move the junk up and out of his lungs. This picture is of Ben after his 20 minute treatment and bath. He's WIPED!
Cute boy. :)
