6.11.10 - So far, so good...

Liam has now been off the vent 12 hours. This is a huge answered prayer...THE prayer we have been praying for awhile now!

Liam continues to do great off the vent. He is on regular oxygen through his nose and his resting sats have been 98-99. Last night he did great too, a few times he got pretty upset and desatted but he always recovered and got his oxygen levels back up fairly quickly.

Also, his arterial line (large IV in his wrist) started coming loose and his arm was bleeding pretty bad so they decided to take that out. He still has his central line (an IV in his shoulder) that all his meds go through that is doing fine, so I was glad they decided to take out the arterial line. It seemed to really be hurting/ bothering him.

Other than that we are just praising God today! We still have a ways to go before we go home, but this was the main hurdle Liam had to get over and I thunk he's made it :). Thank you all again for the outpouring of prayers and support.
