Extubation Time, Come On!

Seth was finally extubated yesterday! They left the Anderson Tube (tube that gently suctions his stomach) in though and that made Seth a little unhappy. Gosh, what's it like to have a tube down your throat gagging you! The Anderson tube was removed today and he is much happier about that!


Two of the incisions on his belly.


Awake and wanting the breathing tube out. It was hard to see him this way! Poor guy!


After extubation, still mad, though cause they left the Anderson tube in.


Still mad. Took awhile and a little bit Adavan to soothe him.


Today after having the Anderson tube out. Life is getting better!

Christina, he looks so good! I a so happy that he is getting better and better. I can't wait to meet him. Do you know when you get to take him home? You are so amazing to be going through all of this. I can't even imagine. Love you!

Oh God bless him. Finally now it's over, what are we waiting for so you can take him home? Cause he looks good to go!

Oh my gosh! My heart sank when I saw the scars on his tiny belly. He looks so good though. I cannot wait until he comes home!

BTW... I knew nothing of this being stationed in another state. When is this happening?
