Brett is still doing well. They took out the pace maker wires this morning, cut back on the number of medications he is receiving and are working to get him off the vent. He is trying to move around, but they currently have him tied to the bed. Hard to watch, but better than having him pull out one of his tubes.
A few minutes ago, he opened his eyes when I spoke to him. According to the nurse, this was the first time they've been open.
Once he is awake and breathing on his own, they will remove the vent. A few hours later we should be able to hold our little boy! They were hoping we would get to that point tonight, but we are thinking it will be tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed!
