24 Hours Off ECMO
After a long, emotional day of ups and downs, Jordan ultimately had a pretty successful day. We watched helplessly as his saturation and corbon dioxide levels climbed and fell all day. We left Jordan on a positive note this evening. He was able to lower his carbon dioxide level almost to normal and raise his oxygen saturations back up to a healthy level. The plan for tonight is continued therapy to try and open the right lung. This will include suctioning him out and chest percussion. Hoping for a safe night and a good x-ray tomorrow morning.
