Great extubation!

.  Her extubation went well.  Once they took her off the vent her sats and everything looked better.  Her blood gases came back at 44 which was thr highest so far.  After it came out she looked so at peace.  A few minutes after she was opening her eyes and enjoying out baby talk with her.  She is waking up a few times now, not to cry but to lool around and have us oogle over her.  A little later she'll get a bottle and hopefully she will keep progressing.


In the first 12 hours you would see heart failure issues and she'd need to go get a cath. After 24 hours you'd see problems with the lungs.  So we have to make it past these first 30 hours. 


Soon other stuff will start coming out like her arterial line.  Olivia is waiting with baited breath for that to come out so she can have both of her little hands free to hold close to her face.  Well update you later but in the meantime this is her best picture yet!!!!!!

  4. Wow, she has come a long way already! Already in her life she has been exposed to more electronics and gadgets than one of my electrical engineering semesters. I think she has technology in her future, haha.
