The tube is out! Oh happy day! He is still on oxygen for the time being, but the breathing tube being out is major progress and he is a lot more comfortable.
So far today he has been communicating clearly. He saw one of his lung transplant docs through the window of his ICU room today and pointed at her. She pointed back and then did a happy dance. Things are good.
White blood cell count is down significantly. Thumbs up to that. Kidneys still suck, but it will take time to know how they will function (or not) in the long term.
When his lung transplant doc came in to talk to him, he had a smile on his face so wide I thought he might burst. It’s good to have my baby back.
