It is nice to see the tubes gone from the chest. Tomorrow they will attempt to lay off some of the sedation and work on weaning the ventilator. It usually takes, they say, 3 days to get off the vent and much longer to get off all the drugs he is on. He will go through withdrawl as most are narcotics. (and when I say alot, I mean ALOT!!!) He has had two open hearts before and both with the same drugs so it took more of them each time.....ALOT of them.
We have an awesome nurse tonight who has been our nurse several nights ....so I will get good rest again tonight.
Keep the prayers coming....they are definately being heard.
