Making Progress

I don't know if it's because he's never seemed that "sick" this time, or what, but this has felt like a very slooooooow process this go around.

I mean, on our bad days, we've pulled less "stuff" out than on our good days in previous stays.

So mostly, it's been watching and waiting while the vent has supported him, but nothing else really.

Yesterday evening, we decided to see if we could pull back a little bit.  And this morning, a little bit more.

He's actually down on his home vent settings right now!  He's sleeping, so we'll see what happens when he wakes up.  But it's progress, and quite a bit.

There are still a few more things that have to happen before we can break out of here.  He needs to make the jump to our home ventilator and we need to come down on his oxygen.  Where he is right now, if we can make that jump, is where we were ordered in.

So there's still some work to do.  But at least we can see progress.  And progress is good, right?

Little by little, one travels far.
