Afternoon Update

I can't believe how far we have come in the last 30 hours.  Josiah never ceases to amaze me.

Josiah remains stable and is doing great!  He continues to sleep most of the time lol.

As promised, the catheter and chest tube have been removed.  The tape/monitors across his forehead have been removed.  The breathing machine is on "support mode" which means Josiah is breathing ON HIS OWN!  What's funny is that his numbers are looking better OFF the machine than they did ON the machine (hahahaha!).  Josiah is asserting his need for independence....just like his brothers :).

He's waking right back.

Ok. It's 30 minutes later and we've made more progress.  Josiah woke up.  They've removed the tube from his mouth.  They've removed the breathing tube completely!  That's a huge step.  He made a few vocalizations but they remain very weak.  Now he's exhausted & sleeping again :)   They will let him rest now.  We are going to attempt nursing him this afternoon, once we get the thumbs up.

Meanwhile, I was able to snag a computer for use in Josiah's room - SWEET!  Carl is here glad to have his company.  While Josiah sleeps, we will run and get some lunch.

I'll be back with more updates.  All my love to friends & family <3
