When Eric was in Texas Children's ICU, preparing to get a tracheostomy, his favorite nurse, Randy, sympathetically fashioned a trach for Mohan.
I discovered it's not a bad to thing to be overly optimistic. Our dear Dr. Thompson fit Eric into his busy day this morning and took Eric's trach out and did a quick bronchoscopy. He also said, "Get him off the O2," because, really, Eric's oxygen level while at rest on room air is consistently in the mid-high 90s. Though I'm sure he'll continue to require O2 with exertion for awhile. Just last evening, Eric lamented, "I just want to feel normal again." Getting the trach out and being off O2 more will certainly help reach that goal. And speaking of reaching goals, Eric's weight was up 0.8 pounds this AM.
After Eric got his trach out, he symbolically took Mohan's trach out as well.
