the ventilator is out and Austin is stable!

The ventilator was removed about 2 hours ago. Austin is breathing well on his own with a little help from oxygen. We're so proud of him!!!
He is also doing a GREAT job of communicating with us! He is still very much "out of it" with sedation and pain meds. But he will respond when spoken to and is hanging in there.
We can tell he is very uncomfortable but he's handling it well.
Pray that all will rest well tonight and continue to do well tomorrow.

I know we say this a lot, but, thank you for walking this road with us!
