My dad has been in ITU for 3 weeks now with covid.
From Friday onwards they have managed to start weaning his sedation and changed the mode on ventilation so he is initiating his own breath.
This is the most postive news we have had since he was intubated. His oxygen requirement has been around 40-45%. He got quite distressed last night with sedation reduction so they slightly increased and he has settled.
Although these are small improvements I am still so scared as the docs told me last week that his lungs are quite damaged with a lot of scarring.
I am so scared that he won't pull through but I am praying so hard.
