fussing will be music to my ears

Woo HOO!!! Weaning!

Quick call from the nurse a bit ago– while the swelling is still pretty big, it’s gotten better enough that it looks like her airway isn’t compromised. They’re taking an x-ray first, but the plan is to wean her off the ventilator this morning, and hopefully have her ex-tubated by noon today. They’re doing a test with her now first, making sure she’s breathing on her own with the tubes still in before taking them out.

She could be awake and talking as early as this afternoon. If she’s fussing at me about how miserable she is (or some other random thing that doesn’t matter) I’ll be a happy camper.

Bitch away, lady. And keep it coming.
