Good News But a Rough Night
Aaron had a rough night last night. This baby Never cries but last night he sure did. And it was audible. And it went on for hours and he just couldn't be comforted. He was just in so much pain. But the good news is that his 3am xray showed that the pneumothorax is resolving and his blood gas test was also really good. So today is a watch and wait day. He's still got a lot of drainage coming out of his stomach tube, and he's got all those normal cold symptoms we all see. And, like last November, he's using a LOT of oxygen. Unlike November, he is certainly NOT the happiest camper in the PICU. Right now he's sleeping quietly, which may be the best medicine he can get. I think I may try to sleep, too. Sorry there are no pictures. I haven't figured out if there's a way to connect my camera and kindle. Please pray that he will start using oxygen more effectively. When he's on 100%, we don't have any wiggle room.
