Extubating Today

Vera will be taken off the ventilator today. The breathing tube down her throat will be removed and she will have to breathe on her own.

This morning, she started grimacing, from the tube discomfort possibly. We are so happy to see that she is moving her face muscles.

As the pain relief and sedation wears off, she can feel the tube in her throat. I bet she wants it out.

We hope that there are no further complications that can derail her over the next few days.
