Have you ever had so much joy you could just sing and shout? That is what my soul is doing today!
This morning they weaned him from his sedated state so he could actually look up and focus on who was talking to him. They took him off the medication that was helping his blood pressure. This afternoon they took him off the ventilator that was helping him breathe. With the trache in his neck it will be easy to hook him back up if need be, but he's been off it and breathing on his own since about 1:30pm. They weren't even sure if he could go 1 hour. Thank you Lord!!
He can nod his head to respond to people. He's learning to mouth words so people understand him. That one is kinda hard because they gave him some valuim to relax him. He was mouthing "Help" "Help Me" I asked what? help you set up.....a nod yes. Oh it hurts when you cant communicate.
Tomorrow they will be doing surgerry on his back & leg. I cant wait for the surgeries to be over and we are on our way to walking!
So Im going to go sing a song of joy over my baby and I'll update you later.
