Well, I just got off the phone with Chris and then the nurse at the CSU. They had to put Dad back on the ventilator again today (which means the breathing tube and feeding tube went back in). Apparently he was pretty lethargic yesterday and they had a hard time getting him to wake-up/stay awake this morning. A blood test showed that he was retaining too much CO2 in his blood because his breathing is too shallow. They’ll recheck things tomorrow and will determine then when they’ll wean him off of the ventilator (again).
