Breathing On Her Own - February 8, 2016

Lilit was extubated today.  She is breathing on her own and only receiving supplemental oxygen via a nasal cannula. She is likely going to be offered food and drink by mouth later this evening.

Update 7:45 pm - After a few hours of breathing on her own, Lilit's efforts to do so became labored and the doctors decided to re-intubate her.  She will be on full support until tomorrow when the process of weaning her off oxygen begins again.  In a few days, another attempt at extubation will be made.  This is Lilit's first major challenge post-surgery, so please keep her in your thoughts.
