Luke's self extubation....

Luke was scheduled to be extubated (have the tube that goes into his lungs removed) last Wednesday. He decided to go ahead and self extubate and save his nurse the trouble. He also decided to pull his feeding tube out over and over and over again. We jokingly said that Luke had roid rage because he had been given steroids to help his lungs. Today Luke was much calmer. So far, Luke has done really well on his Sipap breathing machine. We're thinking Luke maybe had less weight gain this week because he was so wild and likely burned a lot of extra calories in his rages. At one point yesterday, I was holding Henry and could see a blanket flying around in Luke's isolette. He was raging pretty hard at that point!
