So far so good! A specialist came in at 8am local time this morning with Denise and he said that it all looks good. He did advise that there was still a possibility that it would have to be reinserted if he is not able to expectorate or breathe fully once the hole closes up, so we will be keeping a close eye on his blood oxygen levels as the hours and days march on.
Denise stayed with him for a while this morning and will return tomorrow for a bit longer. Penny will visit this afternoon and Elisabeth will be there overnight to monitor him while he sleeps. More tomorrow 🙂
