Off the ventilator again
Hailey got her breathing tube pulled yesterday. She is doing ok so far. Her lactate levels were elevated again but she managed to get them back to where they needed to be. She did well over night, but they are still a bit concerned with her lactates. They keep rising and falling. Just trying to get her in a good place where they will stay low. The bad news is if they have to put the breathing tube back in, it will remain in until her Glen. That is a long time to be sitting in the hospital with a breathing tube! They may do her glen in late October which is pretty early. Please pray that she is able to keep her lactates low so that we can take her home! The picture is from last night when she finally opened her eyes again.
