“Well, we’re movin’ on up (movin’ on up) to the top. To a deluxe apartment in the sky-y-y”…
Logan’s mommy and I were singing “The Jeffersons” theme song today as we paraded around Rudy’s room waiting for his crib to arrive. Yes, I said CRIB. Just minutes before, when I came back from lunch, Nurses Filma and Rosella were busy preparing Rudy and all his lines for a switch to a crib…a big boy bed!
It was quite a production requiring help from Oscar the RT as the ventilator needed to be turned off completely for a minute or two during the transfer. Soon Nurse Filma lifted Rudy up, the bassinet was wheeled out, the crib was wheeled in and Rudy was chillin’ in a new comfy bed. An indication that he is “on the move”.
Today was Rudy’s 6-week birthday and he celebrated by successfully completing 2 four-hour sprints. They started him off on a three-hour sprint early this morning and when he reached 3 hours with relative ease, they let him go for another hour! Good job Rudy. 3-month old Logan, our CTICU neighbor two doors down and a fellow Santa Barbara-ite, was extubated today and I guess Rudy’s urge to compete kicked in because he excelled during his sprints and the docs think extubation is worth a try tomorrow!!!!
