So, we handled coming off the ventilator fabulously, but taking the bolt out is something that's going to have to wait. They started testing the pressure this morning, but by 2:00 decided that he couldn't handle it. So, the bolt stays in for now. But I am not discouraged. He seemed to be in a little more pain today, so the dr upped his pain medicine a little bit. Other than that no change for the day.
Thanks for your prayers...they mean everything.
