Prayer for Huge Step!
This will be a quick update....When we got to the hospital this morning we noticed the ventilator settings were turned down from the night before. The Dr's told us that they want to take an aggressive advancement toward getting Lincoln extubated. Over the next 24 hrs they are going to be weaning the ventilator settings to the point that he will be doing all the work. Their goal is to bring the rate and pressure down to where he is breathing on his own by tomorrow. This is HUGE! Please pray that this is not too quick of a step and that he can tolerate it. Pray that his heart and lung pressures adjust POSITIVELY. Pray that his lung muscles have enough strength and do not tire out too quickly. If they don't adjust positively or if he cannot tolerate it they might have to entertain the idea of adjusting the band on his heart. We will let you know how things are going as soon as possible!
