Bye Bye ECMO

We just met with Dr Spray and he said that Caelen did great coming off ECMO. He did not have to close the fenestration either. He wants to wean the diuretics and start waking Caelen today, and he'd even like to extubate to oxygen tomorrow! He said Caelen needs to start getting up abd walking around once he is extubated. Dr Spray was very hopeful that Caelen will be just fine.

Time to take a breath.

Caelen's lungs are still crappy though, so we need to work on them and continue to dry them out. Thank you to all for the prayers, please keep working your miracles. I cannot thank each and every one of you enough. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!


  1. Wooohoooo! Praying for dry lungs and continued improvement!

  2. Awesome news! Sending some good vibes from 2 doors down!
