Jo is stable and pushing through his bout with the flu. Unfortunately overnight he did not progress much with breathing on his own. He remained status quote with support from the ventilator.
Today they've begun slow reduction of the machine and so far so good.
The overall plan for today is very slowly reduce support and see how Jo reacts.
We are both praying and hoping that by the end of the day there will be a chance to remove intubation tomorrow at some stage. It is exciting and terrifying as we wait for Jo to breath on his own again.
Let's direct all of our prayers and positive vibes to successful removal of the ventilator support!
Jojobinks it's time to show us again that you're ready to take the next step! Mommy and daddy are here, we love you so much sweet angel. God has you in his hands he will not let you fall...❤❤
