Failed Extubation

We just tried to extubate (pull the ventilator tube out and put him on lower support) him at around 10 am this morning. He was not ready. They tried a C-Pap then they tried a darth vader sounding SiPap. He was visibly agitated. He kept doing this shoulder shake motion which Jenna and I had never seen before. The doctor's plan is to wean his steroids down and try extubation again in a couple of weeks after he is closer to 2.5 kilograms. He is currently weighing in at around 2.23 kilograms.

It's a good thing Mikan is so cute.
