Despite battling the flu Levi did well today. They have been weaning him off of the nitrous oxide and his saturation levels have actually gone up. This afternoon he was averaging 95-99 percent saturations on 35 percent oxygen. If things continue to go well he may be off the vent in the next couple of days. At that point they will have to wean him off of his narcotics. Due to the prolonged sedation he has likely developed some dependencies.
There are still longterm questions in regards to how his lungs will respond to the new anatomy and how extensive the present damage is but it appears that the heart repair was successful.
Thanks so much for your support and please continue to keep us in your prayers.
