So Far So Good
Well at 3pm they called me to say that Kaden was successfully clamped & they were going to remove him off of Ecmo. I told them to wait until we got there to do the surgery. I told Kaden this is it, this is his true test, and the largest hurdle of all. I promised everything else would seem small compared to this. I couldn't help but cry, I mean this is it, I could lose him now. No more Ecmo to keep him stable. During the decanulization, Kaden's breathing tubes self extubated. Kaden was so sedated he couldn't breathe and his stats dropped and he had to be resuscitated, again with no chest compressions. They already had the cannulas out and were tying off the vein and artery. One more miracle to add to Kaden's list. He is stable and doing ok. Please Lord let it stay this way. Kaden's strength is amazing and he is my hero. I'm ok as long as he is ok. My little man, he's a warrior. He's defying all odds and If it is God's will, he will continue to do so.
