Things are really looking up today. When Dan and I arrived at Louis' Office, we found Louis wide awake! He has been taken off of all IV pain medications and his little breathing mask is turned off. Two of the main IV lines were removed also. We were able to hold him and read to him from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 

Although he is still hooked up to a lot of things, it's very positive that he is breathing with absolutely no assistance and his heartbeat and blood pressures are looking good. 

We will still need to have his chest tubes and peritoneal drain removed and begin feedings before he can relocate his office from the PICU to a regular hospital room. 

I'll update with more information tomorrow. Louis is one tough cookie! Love that pink baby.
