They had Skyler on a spontaneous breathing setting all day today and he did amazing. So when the came in to suction him he said "Let's just extubate him" At first I thought he was just joking but when the NP and Doc came in and said "Lets do it" I started freaking out. It was too good to be true, but ten min later they pulled the tube!!! This is huge! It all happened so fast. I thought it would take the whole team sitting down and really talkin it through first before it would happen, but it was just so fast. So after five weeks he is finally free of a breathing tube. I am so happy! Here are some pics of them taking out the tube. He also wanted to sit up so they sat him up and he sat there by himself without any help. It was amazing.
