Trey had another quiet day of resting. We had visits from Nana, Grandaddy, Aunt Mary Sue and Shannon today.
Unfortunantely, Trey had some bleeding today and it got a bit out of control between 3 and 6. Thankfully Hannah, his nurse, and Susie, the ECMO specialist, were able to get it under control.
The plan is to start weaning him off the ECMO machine starting at midnight tonight. He is currently at a flow of 100. They want to be down to a rate of 50 by rounds at 7 am and down to 25 by around 10 am. At that time they will clamp him to see how his heart does and what his ejection fraction is.
Around noon tomorrow they are also going to move the cannulas from the ECMO machine from his heart to some arteries in his neck. If the swelling of his heart is down they are then also going to close his chest. He is also going to be receiving a new ECMO circuit (the tubing, pump and oxygenator) because there is some clotting in the current circuit.
