Ambrose spent 10 hours off of pressure support yesterday and is now attempting to stay off. Then he will start "trach collar trials." (meaning no CPAP, just his usual O2 through the trach mask, which will make him much more portable.)
His IV came out last night. Amazingly it was still going after 8 days. The tape was damp from his bath and dressing him apparently dislodged it. Oh well, it's gone now. They decided to stop the antibiotics, except for the one treating the C-Diff, which is given by G-tube so he does not need an IV. Hurray!
Ambrose sends a big THANK YOU to all of his friends for keeping up with his expoits through the blog!
