|Immediately following surgery ~ still intubated|
Extubating him went well, for the most part. It made him quite unhappy to have that tube pulled, so his sats dropped to 19 8-O ~ not good! When the night nurse came on, his day nurse said, "Jethro is a baby with a 2-yr old attitude!" I suppose that if anyone has a right to pitch a fit, it's a baby who's had to go through a few surgeries.
This morning, he is looking good, and Dr. Sunshine wrote orders for starting to feed this baby, and to begin both Speech and Physical therapy. Everyone seems pretty happy with how Jethro is doing ~ but they are also keeping in mind that he has a tendency to do well, and then take a dive. :-P
