Day 65

First let me say that Mommy had nothing to do with the previous posting of unflattering pics. :o) And in case you haven't picked up on it Cody has a gift for creating his own unique vocabulary, so you're not alone if this is the first time you've heard mention of Rhysenstein.

Today was more of the same for Rhys. Still no word on the results from his EEG. His inspiratory pressure is now at 18 (down from 20) and he is holding at 25bpm. He is getting really good at pushing his tubes around. He likes to get his hand up underneath them and then stretch and push out. Not to say he exactly knows what he's doing, but he does this quite often. He is also very much a wiggle worm. He is constantly fidgeting and working himself out of his contained/tucked in positions. He is also trying really hard to move his head more than I'm comfortable with - especially when we hold him. We're hearing "extubation" mentioned more frequently now, so we're headed in that direction. Hopefully little man can maintain his progress and we'll get there sooner rather than later! Hope all is well with everyone who stayed through Ike. We finally got power late last night and even though we didn't have damage it feels like we have so much to do.
