Emma was removed from the ventilator on Monday morning and she has been off of it since. The last couple times that she came off, she had to go back on within 24 hours, so we are hopeful that she will stay off for good now. Since she is off the vent, Alissa and I have been able to hold her quite a bit this week. This has made us so happy. She has also been moved to a private room. She had become more agitated due to all the noise in the open area, so they decided to see if a quiet room would help. It has been good for her, but we miss the interaction with the other parents and nurses. I’ll send another update next Monday unless something significant comes up.
