Today the pulmonary specialist has started weaning him off the ventilator. They will keep a close eye on his blood pressure, oxygen level and any sign of anxiety. They will back off and try in a few hours if that happens. We are all excited about this. As long as his breathing is good they will continue the weaning until eventually they can remove the breathing tube.
I know we still have a long way to go and things can get bad in a single breath (or lack of) but I'm more positive than negative.
Last night I went home and my computer is not working again after it was looked at. Then when I went downstairs I saw it was flooded. I can handle a terminally ill husband on a ventilator, but those two things put me over the edge. If there is something called life rage I had it. Fortunately, no one was there with me.
