No removal today
They are not going to remove the breathing tube today, this is due to the swelling. Please pray the swelling will go down so they can proceed with the removal. Luke did a good job on a 2.5 hour breathing test. The test involves putting the machine into a mode where Luke does the breathing and it only kicks in if he fails to breath. Luke passed with flying colors. He is coughing well, so it is just a matter of the swelling going down and they are giving him steroids to help.
