Easton is now awake! He's still on the conventional ventilator and is completely off of the vecuronium drip. They started him back on methadone to wean him from the other drugs. He has to go down two more on his pressures and then will be at normal settings on the vent. Although he would then be able to come off the vent he will stay on it until surgery (tracheostomy) which will be within the next week or so. Easton is truly a miracle ~ cousin Amy
