The doctor decided to take Ava off the vent this morning around 0800 hours. Ava was really struggling to breath and I was trying to calm her in hope she would stay off. It kills me to see her struggle like this. Around 0850 hours the doctor told me her gases were not good and I would have to leave so they can put the tube back down her throat. I am so against rushing kids to get them off the vent in return to just put them back. I understand you have to attempt, to find out, but there are times when I dont understand what a doctor is thinking. Ava had a rough day yesterday and that was on the vent. Her chest x-rays dont look any better and still are wet. For what I can remember everytime Ava's lungs are wet, she struggles with breathing. I dont understand why a doctor would go ahead and make that decision at my baby's expense. Ava struggles with breathing everytime her lungs are wet. I am a laid back guy and let the doctors do their thing but in my opinion the doctor ignored what Ava has told them in the past and made a bad decision, risking my daughters health. Yes I am a bit upset.
