Leaps & Bounds
Noah has been improving by leaps and bounds over the past couple of days!! Despite continued fevers, he was able to switch to PSV mode yesterday so he is initiating all his own breathing and the vent settings are minimal now. He is slowly weaning off all the sedation and was quite awake this evening. His strength is returning quicker than we anticipated and we are already having to watch those little hands. This evening he was able to lift both his arms and legs off the bed. There is talk of trying to extubate him tomorrow and see how he does! What an incredible little boy we have! To see him open his eyes and respond to us just brings me to tears. I can't wait to hear that cry!!
