Today I was extubated. That means they removed the breathing tube that went in my nose and went down my throat and kept air pumping into my lungs. It also means that I took my very first breath on my own! The bad news is that now I have this other source of oxygen that looks like one of those beer hats and it is noisy and wet and makes me cranky. Now when I'm upset I can cry and sound comes out.
