Thursday

Okay Alan came off ECMO yesterday which went pretty well. It was rocky at first getting everything balanced once he was off but he was very stable all throughout the day. Tried yesterday letting him be unparalyzed but it made his pressures go up a little. This morning he had his chest closed. He's looking awesome to us. They'll try again with getting him off paralytic so he can do some wiggling. Alan's a champ. Now that the chest is closed he gets to move forward with the immune supression. He'll have his immune system wipped out so that he can start over with the body hopefully not rejecting the heart.
