Day 6 Update # 3

Again not a lot to report.  Birk is still resting very comfortably.  He has had a decent day.  Some minor moments where he has woken up, but other than that...he is resting comfortably. We got a chance to meet with the ENT team (which was nice since we haven't really spoken much).  They were very impressed with how he is doing so that was very nice.  Now that we've (maybe) figured out the sedation issue it is looking very good for us.

The plan is to again go down on Friday (everyone is pushing for an earlier appt.) and possibly ext abate him in the OR.  We've been warned that the 2nd round of this might be exciting.  As he comes off his use of all of these drugs they've warned us that he might be a bit challenging at times.  We have made the decision that this week (while he is sedated) we will try to sleep at the Ronald McDonald house as often as we can (as long as he is still behaving here in the PICU).  That way we can at least start the withdrawal process well rested! :-)

Numbers 6:24-26 "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
