Elizabeth's procedure to have the broviac placed went well. She has been resting pretty much all day from the anesthesia. Looks like her home vent will be delivered here tomorrow, so not sure when they will try to transition her to it. We plan to push her a little tomorrow as far as her trach collar trials. Matt and I are starting to think she can do ALOT more than what we have been making her do. With all her issues this week with regards to the IV and not having access, its been hard to push her when she has to get stuck a gazillion times, but now that has been taken care of.  SO tomorrow and this weekend, WE are going to make sure she is doing as much work as she can. I hate to think we are keeping her on a vent when she really doesn't need it that much. She has new lungs, and needs to be using them ;)
