Paralytic off once again

This is my view from where I sit in the "bed space". We watched today as Tucker slowly but surely woke up. Toes wiggling, arms moving....slowly he came to life. The medicine, sedation that is, is much better this go around --no bucking bronco...just a wiggle worm. He is breathing over the vent but minimally, he will have to improve much more to come off. The balance of timing vs. sedation is the key. Tonight I think we just lay low, make sure our awake times stay as good as they have today...then see what tomorrow brings. Maybe a different sedation, a tweak to back off, who knows.
