We hurried to get the house finished and now I'm waiting, waiting, waiting. Waiting for the heavy sedation drugs to wear off, waiting for John to be able to breathe on his own, waiting for him to look me in the eyes and be in there, waiting for his smile, to hear his voice and his kind words.
The docs have changed his drug protocol. They are trying to wean him from the three drug sedation to Precedex. The Precedex should have less issues with him being so agitated and out of it. They will again try extubation once the sedation is better. They can even extubate him while on the Precedex. This could be as early as today, but most likely tomorrow. We will see what happens then.
Thank you so much for thinking of John and for your prayers.
God bless you as you travel and enjoy your weekend.
