03-15-12 UPDATE — CPMC/CHONY PICU – Day 8

Faith is doing well, they have continued to increase sedation as she is able to burn through it at an amazing rate.

She should be going to the OR tomorrow to have the breathing tube removed and ENT will also most likely scope her at the time to take a look at the tissues of the upper airway. Slight fever again today, was fever free for past two days. No signs of infection and all tests thus far are negative.

The long term outlook for right now is if she is able to get off the ventilator tomorrow we are still looking at least one more week of hospitalization afterwards.
