Todd had a wonderful night and has weaned almost 24 hours @ 10 AM! THIS IS THE GREATEST IMPROVEMENT YET AS FAR AS WEANING!
What does that mean? Todd has done 85 % of the work on breathing, he takes 14-17 breaths per minute, which is norm for us, the machine is only a safety net during the weaning, and does provide a puff of oxygen for every 16 breaths he takes. The POSITIVE to this, Todd’s Diaphragm is working more and stronger which is allowing this to happen!
THE DIAPHRAM waking up and acting strong will allows Todd to work to get off the machine. Now he has to do this for 48 hours first, then four days with no issues and he will be on his way to physical therapy in house rehab, YEAH!!!!!
GOD answered several of our prayers today, THANK YOU GOD!
GOD IS GREAT AND POWERFUL!!
His vitals are great:
Heart Rate 85-92
Again thanks to everyone for their support, love and caring, and their time.
Love to all,
God Bless to all,
KEEP THOSE PRAYERS GOING FOR STRENGTH, ENERGY, AND MOBILITY AND TO GET OFF THE VENT NEXT WEEK.
Thanks Jeff N Todd
