Charlie continues to impress the doctors and nurses! His vitals have remained stable since his chest closure this morning, the surgeon stopped by and said things looked "great." The PA just popped in to check on him and stated that "everyone keeps saying that he's not acting like a Norwood" (which in this case is a VERY GOOD thing!).
If things continue to progress today, the staff will begin weaning him from his ventilator late tonight/tomorrow morning and hopefully extubate him sometime tomorrow! And - as an added bonus for being such a good boy in the PICU - the PA said we might even be able to start giving him a teeny, tiny amount of breast milk tomorrow...his first feeding since being born!
