She's free!

Well, sort of. They extubated at 1:04 this afternoon and she seems to be doing well. They started off on the high flow system at 10 liters, 100%. She was doing great...but then they made her mad. She's having some major bleeding issues today from her arterial line. The doctor put in some extra stitches and she didn't like that so much. So, her sats started to drop into the lower 80's, so she has moved on over to the Aquanox system. This is more for the adult world, but she seems to be handling it well. She's starting out at 20 liters, 100% and we'll work from there. Her sats still aren't great, but better. Anyway, she looks great and is sucking away on her pacifier as we speak! Thanks for the great prayers!
