Benjamin is having an awesome morning:) This morning the nurses were dancing a bit to the music and Benjamin started wiggling and laughing. The nurses got him so excited & happy that they had to sedate him. When we came in, Benjamin smiled at us:):) This is the first time in 2 weeks. At first we thought it was coincidence but he kept doing it. Once he calmed down a bit, all he could do was watch us until they gave him a drug to help him sleep.
His oxygen challenge this morning was also great!! It was so good that they were considering trying him off ECMO again. But they've decided to wait and see how he does over the next couple days. His chest x-ray was also better than yesterday.
We're having a hard time not getting excited about this but yet in the back of our mind we wonder if this is the good day before he crashes. For now, we will smile & see him smile back at us and enjoy the moment.
