Update...at 4 am tomorrow morning they will stop his feed line and start IV fluids. They will switch his meds over to some different ones and get him ready to be excabated. (take out the breathing tube) They are going to do it in his room. Please pray for peace for Grasshopper. We want him to remain calm through a breathing treatment and give himself time to adjust to not being on the ventalator. We are hoping to be home in time for Christmas....my brother-in-law Sam's present isn't quite finished. Don't worry Sam I'll make sure it's done.
