Progress...

The PA line and chest tubes are out. We had to put some paralytic back on board while doing those two things but it is wearing off once again. They will chill him out for the rest of the day and start backing off on the sedation tomorrow..ever so slowly. Also increase his feeds possibly to get the gut going. The also took out the pee pee cath....so we are in diapers now. (yeah)

The rash isn't any better and there was a few spots under the tape around the chest tubes that almost look like blisters. We haven't gotten any thing back from the cultures that were sent yesterday but should have preliminaries sometime today. We have a small fever once again as well.

Keep those prayers coming.
