Today was much better. Cannon was extubated between 9-10 this morning. And he is much happier. He has had a very restful day. We haven't got to hold him because they don't want to over stimulate him after being on the vent. But it has been wonderful just to sit and watch him sleep peacefully. I have still been able to cath him and change his diapers. He keeps trying to turn his head, wanting to lay on the side of his shunt. Which is fine, we just don't want him to put pressure on the incision or on the valve. He is back off the IV fluids and back up to his 60cc feedings every 3 hours. It was funny this morning because the nurse was suctioning out his mouth and started sucking on the suction catheter. I think he's ready to go back to nursing, but they are going to re-evaluate tonight to see if they think he is ready. So over all, I would say that today was wonderful. We didn't see the neurosurgeon today, so I'm not sure where we stand there. I'll have to ask the nurse if he had come by this morning. However all we are waiting for from the NICU dr is the okay that he is eating well enough on his own. I don't think that will be a problem. Well, I just wanted to add this picture. I know that it's my profile picture, but I really just love it. Grandaddy took it before he left on Saturday.
