His x-ray has also improved a lot. In fact, enough that there has been some noise about it being at least partially a stubborn plug that we removed when I did the trach change. That could have been obstructing part of the lung enough to cause some of the patchiness in the first x-ray.
|After seeing this x-ray, I knew we weren't going home.|
Look especially at the upper right side (left lung).
|This morning. There's still some patchiness in|
the upper left lung, but it's much better.
And overall, there's much more air
(black space) in both lungs.
Yep, things are definitely looking rosier around here (even if still much colder outside than I'd like).
