I just wanted to update everyone on Trig's progress. Yesterday, he got his main chest tube out and also a smaller tube out that helps fluid drain off his chest. They might have to put the small tube back in because it was clogged and they didn't know it until they removed it. Hopefully they won't have to put it back in. They did a spontaneous breathing trial today for 1 hour and he was able to breath on his own the whole time so they might be able to take the breathing tube out tomorrow. He seems to be making progress, it is slow, but at least he is going forward and not backward. One of the nurses told us that he is not on the fast track to recovery but that he is still improving so we are happy about that. If anyone would like to come up and visit we would love some visitors. Trig can have short visits also. Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers and support.
Trig was born with a Congenital Heart Defect called Transposition of the Great Arteries. When he was just a few hours old he got to go on his first helicopter ride. He was Life Flighted to Primary Children's where he underwent open heart surgery when he was 6 days old.
