Just talked to Bodie's surgeon. Apparently, Bodie's pulmonary beds were "twitchy," a problem Bodie had before his shunt revision (the new shunt they put in during his last surgery was so big it basically overrode the twitchiness). The surgeon seems to think he'll be intubated for a few hours and then hopefully switch him to a nasal cannula - but if our experience has taught us anything, it's that what actually happens in the cticu can be very different, so we'll see what happens. Please pray that we can get him off the vent this afternoon!
