So, Carla has been extubated for almost an hour now and she seems to be doing well. Her oxygen saturation's are in the mid to high 90s and she is only on 1 and 3/4 liters of oxygen mixed with nitric oxide! We are cautiously excited out of our minds! This is HUGE and we are so ready to turn this corner and to start watching her get better!!! I can't wait to watch her run and play with a whole heart!! If she continues to do great over the next 24 hours I will be over the moon!
In the Lord's name I pray... please let Carla continue to do well extubated, help her continue to heal, have healthy lungs and help her body accept it's new heart as it's own. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
