A BIG thank you to our PICU family for making my birthday GREAT! Cake, birthday song and treats! We are so lucky to have such wonderful, caring people as our friends. THANK YOU! We have collectively decided (with much reservation) to take Ben home on his vent. He's not weaning succesfully. This has weighed very heavily on my heart and was NOT an easy decision. But...we need to be home. I still have my hopes that he will eventually come off, but either way this is what we feel is best at this time.
