This evening, they took Will off the vent. He is breathing well on his own. He is happy as a clam that he can now wiggle around, kick and grab things without getting in trouble! (Since he kept trying to pull his vent tube out, they often kept his hands tied down). Connie has already been able to hold him and will also be able to help give him a bath tonight.
Today we had our Arny Christmas in Ann Arbor. It was a good day for everybody!
Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday morning. Will is the first patient on the schedule. Unfortunately, they will have to put Will back on the vent for the surgery.
Thanks for your prayers! We all wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
