I just woke up and called the hospital and they just took him off the vent! They are going to watch him very carefully for the next few hours to make sure he does OK, but so far he seems to be doing well. Keep your fingers crossed that this continues, especially since last night, Magnus was starting to make it clear that he did NOT like the tube. He was starting to chew on it, and to peel the tape off his face with his little fingers (this kid seems to have some pretty awesome fine motor control).
Assuming he does OK, the next thing to go will be his chest drainage tubes, probably on Monday.
