well, Brian stayed with Amanda last night...not sure how much sleeping went on, although he insists she did some, but what she did do was pull her trach out TWICE!!! She would kind of wake up and feel all the wires and crap and just started pulling away and out popped the trach. The nurse this morning said, well, the good news is she did just fine with it out and we didn't have to rush to put it back in, stayed satting in the upper 90s supposedly, I can only imagine what that is going to look like on the tape, Brian trying to convince Amanda to let him put it back in, her screaming half asleep...NOOOOO!!!! someone will get a laugh I am sure. We head in tomorrow for a scope at 10:30. More to come.

Good luck with the scope today- nice to hear she did ok when she pulled her trach out and they didn't have to run to replace it. Hopefully a step in the right direction.
