Tentatively so far the heart is staying strong
They started the weaning process of the ecmo machine at 4 am. This means his own heart and lungs are doing 50% of the work the machine was doing for him. So far so good. They will do a test clamp later this morning and hope that his body can take over. I think he can. I think his body wants to take over.
John and I very grateful for everyone's support - from those who know us well, to those who have met us in passing, and the people we have not met but are part of our larger community. I am not a social media person but for this challenge I read the comments for sustenance and read them to Iain.
