24 hours (updated)
Here's the deal. When Tricia goes vent free for 24 consecutive hours she gets moved out of ICU. Then Nate and Agnes will be able to be with her round the clock (we hope) again. She's getting close.
Her sister Megan is arriving this evening for a visit, which is always good for Tricia. She also walked the halls twice today.
BTW, I'm not in Durham. I arrived home Saturday night. But I'm getting telephone updates from Nathan and my wife Gail. Hopefully she'll come home tomorrow.
Tricia walked 750 feet twice today without any oxygen support, and has been off the vent all day and the plans are to keep her off unless she needs the vent again.
Gwyneth is up past 2lbs 12oz, which means she is now double her birth weight. They think she’ll be completely on the bottle within the next few weeks.
