One Day at a Time
Eric was stable overnight. Dr. Thompson would like to take steps to wean Eric off the ventilator. Guaranteed, this will be a slow process, but we'd still like to see it happen sooner rather than later. Eric is now on the mode of ventilation where he initiates all breaths, but then is given a boost from the vent with each breath (PSV/CPAP) Right now, he's breathing pretty fast, and his SaO2 is on the low side, so please pray that he can be comfortable and his SaO2 will go up.
