Namine is now back on the fourth floor. Most importantly, this means that she’s off the ventilator, hopefully for good. She’s now on the humidifier (which looks sort of like the vent, but they’re not the same). Some more great news, she can now be held. But remember kids, she’s not a football.
Jess and I are being trained on caring for her trach. We’ve so far only done suctioning (getting mucus/saliva/other yuckies out of her trach), but tomorrow we’ll start cleaning and changing the trach as well.
At this rate, maybe she will be home by the end of this month, after all.
