Update from Tucker's Mom
Our CF warrior continues to amaze everyone! We are now learning how very sick Tucker was hours prior to surgery. On Wednesday the day after receiving his lungs, Tucker was back in the OR. I can now say he is responding well! ECMO machine, ventilator, catheter, neck IVs, have all been removed as he's being monitored in ICU. He walks 3 x a day, which is not an easy task and talking alot through his trache! Today is another swallow test so hopefully he'll get the green light to begin drinking/eating! The week has been successful and prayers answered. Please continue to keep him in your prayers as he needs much strength and determination to continue forward. Peace to all.
