Aidan is doing so well! The residents have worked out a schedule and he will be off his Versed and Morphine by tomorrow hopefully. They will keep him on Ativan and Methadone to help him through withdrawal. They are also actively weening him off the ventilator the rate has dropped from 30 to 18 over the last 24 hours and he has been responding well.
In other news I am jealous of Laura! After seeing Aidan doing so well and wide awake I convinced her to hold Aidan. After 36 days of not holding Aidan Laura was almost in tears while holding him. He is still on the ventilator so instead of moving him too much I decided I will hold Aidan tomorrow but I can still be jealous of Laura. As you can see in the picture he still looks very highly sedated and he does not have complete control over his eye movements.
