What happened yesterday/last night

The surgery to replace Aidan's trach tube went great. They went up a full size, and the difference in his breathing is noticeable.

They have now added morphine to his drug cocktail. They had to give some boluses of meds yesterday to help settle some storms; however, since replacing the trach tube, there has been a difference in things. As of last night when we called the nurse's station (approx. 11 or midnight, I think it was), he had a 20-minute storm where all he really did was become rigid; his heart rate and respirations remained low.

Erin is on her way to the hospital now. I'll give her a call a little later and find out if anything happened overnight.
