I wanted to give an update on Tyler’s status and also kind of explain the machine he is on as it helps to explain where we are. Yesterday the surgery was to hook him up to the machine. The machine at that time was doing 100% of the work his lungs would be doing. The said it would take some time but they would eventually start moving some of the work of his lungs back gradually over time. They actually started doing that today and he is now using the machine for 75% and 25% of his own lung use. We are very encouraged by this progress.
If you happen to know about an ECMO it also can be used to help the heart. Tyler’s heart is very strong and they are not leveraging the machine for this purpose.
