Not much change today. The team started reducing the sedation drugs but in a short time bumped the sedation med levels back up as well the pain meds. Jackie vomited a couple times which causes issues with the vent and his lungs
The results of the chest X-ray had the team push the tube a little further down into the lungs and that got the oxygenation level where it needed to be. Basic reflex tests showing positive results. Huge win for now!
There was concern about his heart due to some early blood results, but so far there does not appear to be anything to worry about. Still waiting for final results. Back to letting Jackie just be.
The nursing staff has been phenomenal and the night ahead should hopefully be a quiet one.
