Good news to greet my first morning back since Sunday. They're going to try to pull Levi off the ventilator by this afternoon. They've pulled back the pressure, so that he's essentially breathing on his own now, and they're going to see how he does. The internist is pleased that he hasn't seemed to have any adverse effects from the flu and is hopeful that he'll be ready to support himself. There's a chance that his airway will swell up after pulling out the tube and they'll have to put it back in, but we're hoping that won't be the case. Still don't know what that means in terms of him going home, but he'll definitely be a happier camper off that nasty breathing machine.
They've also cut his sedation in half, so watch out world—Bee-bi is waking up.
