We never noticed just how blue Daniel's little fingernails and toenails were...until now. Now his little nail beds are the most beautiful shade of pink! We swear his skin tone is noticeably different too. It's amazing.
Our little bao bao is truly a fighter. They were able to remove his breathing tube at around 6:00 this evening. It is painfully obvious that he detests restraints, so the plethora of tubes coming out of everywhere are driving him crazy already! He goes wild just about every hour on the nose, and we are being told that the next 12 - 18 hours will be the roughest. It will be a delicate balancing act of managing his pain and making sure he's breathing properly with his new plumbing.
Jimmy and I decided that we should both stay in the ICU room for now. That way one of us can rest and the other can be next to Daniel during the night. We both feel that someone should be next to him at all times right now.
Thank you all so much for your prayers. They mean the world to us, and they are obviously working! Will update tomorrow...
