IT has been an exhausting day but T is doing a little better. His oxygen saturations are mid 70's and he is only on 50% oxygen. So considering just out of surgery that is okay. He is starting to wake up a little bit more. They have him only on moriphine for pain meds and it is PRN (with our approval-no repeats of last time). They are still optimisticaly hoping for weaning him off the ventalator tonight or early morning. He is breathing over the vent so this is not such a long shot. His blood gasses have been pretty good and his blood pressure is finally down to a appropriate level. His BP is still higher than normal but within range. His heart rate and function  have been good pretty much  all day. Overall we are happy with how his recovery is going. His nurses have been awesome and we have felt very welcome and missed....(one of  his old nurses has called to check on him twice and she is on vacation in Arizona- so that made us feel really good) and we have had tons of hospital staff stop in to check on him.  It is so amazing to see how many people even here have been checking up and thinking of Tristan. T has so many wonderful people rooting for him. Thank you all SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for your continued prayers and support. We will do another update after rounds today.
