Breathing tube out!
9:38 AM. They just pulled Logan's breathing tube out (a process called extubation for all you nerds out there...)! This means he is recovering at an incredible rate! The breathing tube provided positive pressure for his lungs, but it seems our little super-hero continues to beat the odds! Currently they have him on a cannula of oxygen (just a small clear tube that's slightly inserted into his nostrils), but he'll be off of that soon too. Now that the tube is out, Logan will be able to "eat" relatively soon. In two hours he can have clear liquids (we'll give him Pedialite, a baby gatorade so to speak), and in four hours some formula. We personally can't wait to hold our little guy!
