Extubation day

Becca gets off the ventilator today. She is pretty worried about it and does not want it taken out, but I think she will forgive us is a couple of days. Last night her hands were busy busy; I put a small rubbery elephant in her hand and she messed with it for hours. She is more awake for longer than ever before, though we are joyful, it is harder to see in some ways. She is clearly positionally uncomfortable and is moving her arms and legs all over the place. She also seems a bit depressed, with furrowed brows, and is tearing up during some of our conversations. We will give another update later today after we she how she does off the vent.EK
