Elliott is doing well. They removed the pd catheter this morning. Chest X-ray not as good this morning, it was a little cloudy. It should not preclude him from being extubated, though. The surgeon seems to think it may be due to having him on the vent for so long. He had another pressure support trial early and did well. They are drawing another blood gas in 30 minutes and if that looks good, they will extubate!
