We're on a home vent!!

Clay's on a home ventilator!! He's been on the Trilogy 200 since about 9:30 this morning.

So far, he's been resting really well and seems real comfortable when he's asleep. But when he's awake, he can definitely tell something's different. He acts somewhat uncomfortable and his respiratory rate is a little higher than normal...but he's not throwing frantic, air hungry, sweaty fits. His oxygen saturation levels are good, the ventilator is sensing his breaths and he's getting good volumes...so things are looking relatively optimistic. We're just hoping Clay will level out and get used to the new ventilator with a little time.
Please be sending lots of good vibes and lots of prayers to Clay to transition well and be hoping for home vent success!

If things go well over the next couple of days, we will be doing training Thursday and Friday, then doing care-by-parent on Friday night, then we might get outta here early next week!! We gotta get through these next couple of days first..

Keep your fingers & toes crossed, my friends! Thank you all SO SO much for your continued love, prayers & support for my lil family. Lots of love and peace to you all! XOXO
