On the vent again 6:08am April 8th

We just got a call from Owen's nurse.  They had to re-intubate him about a half an hour ago.  They thought he was working to hard and then he started getting a bit feverish.  They gave him some antibiotics to bring down the fever and now he is back on the ventilator.  This is really common for them to have to put kids back on ventilator support shortly after taking them off.  They don't really consider this a setback and are still planning on taking out his heart leads and chest tubes later today.
