Quiet Day

We've had a quiet day. The stream of doctors has slowed to a trickle. No tests today. Just breathing, healing, weaning, listening to jazz, reading (Bob and I read out loud to Eric). Bob and I took turns going outside for some fresh air and sunshine today. We wish we could take Eric outside. Imagine not being outdoors for five weeks. I'd like to put him in a wheelchair and sit in a garden for awhile. But he's got significant strength training to do before he'll be able to sit that long. First order of business is to get him extubated. Current vent settings; CPAP 6, PSV 18, FiO2 .63. The nitric acid will be off later this evening.

What a gift - a quiet day! We continue the prayers here in New Stanton, PA and we look forward to the day when your family will come for a visit. We'll rejoice with you in answered prayers when Eric joins you on that visit. Until then you remain in our thoughts and prayers!
