Tube removal


Kathryn had a good morning with a breathing test around 4am.  It ran for an hour and she did great!  She is an A+ breather.  That is only one of the three parts needed to pass.  The second part was to pass the test from the blood drawn from an artery.  I’m not sure what all they test but they check the oxygen in the blood and other things.  She passed this too!  So far a 4.0.  The third test is fro the doctor to approve of her chest x-ray.  Finally we got his call back with a all clear and ready to go.  That means her lungs look good and the tube can be removed.  We are just waiting for this to be done and it is now 11:30am on 12/28.  The feeding tube will remain because her throat will more than likely be irritated so eating (even Camp food) could be a challenge.
