For those of you who are wondering, Gracie is doing well. Though she is still intubated, she is making progress and we will probably try to extibate this week, I think it depends on her x-rays and what they look like after having a couple of spontaneous trials off the vent. I'm grateful that this time around we have a less aggressive Attending on duty, she knows Gracie well enough that she is hesitant to push her too fast.
I'd write more, but I really am having a hard time collecting my emotions and thoughts. Thank you for checking up on my sweet babe.
