Where’s Waldo?

June 16, 2006

We got to Will’s room at about noon today, and it suddenly seemed much larger. What was missing? After a minute, I realized that it was the ventilator. Not by the bed, not in the corner, not across the room. Not outside the door, or down the hall, or next to the nurse’s station. It’s gone! Our nurse confirmed this, though she reminded us that patients still need to be re-intubated at times. However, for every hour he goes without it, the chance of him needing it again goes down. So it seems pretty unlikely, now that we’re over 27 hours out.

Before he was extubated, Will was moved up to the PICU/Green, where he’s sharing a large room with another baby. Which means that we’re all able to sit by his bed and be together again; one big happy family. It’s wonderful.
