We finally said goodbye to Judah’s breathing tube!
I wish I could say it’s been smooth sailing, but the past two days have been rocky. Judah’s throat, nose and adenoids have been very irritated by the breathing tube, causing a lot of bleeding. He’s been moved from heavy narcotics to weaning drugs, causing him a lot of hard withdrawal symptoms. And extubation was pretty scary.
There’s a reason we call him our warrior, our bear, our lion. He is a fighter, and he is ROCKING IT. His airway is doing well, and you can see that all Judah wants is to feel better. So that’s just what he’s going to do.
The next two days will be tough ones as we have to fight some battles, but we’re doing it. And we can do anything. I was not expecting extubation to be the hardest part, but here we are! Now we can climb down this mountain.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers – I will share photos and happy stories when we are ready.
Much love, many thanks,
