WOW, how the time flies. Monday again.....lets see that is 4 Mondays now..I think. I lose track of time. Anyway. Weekends around the hospital are pretty low key, nothing changing much. We did try to let Tucker do some sprints yesterday, that is time on the vent with just pressure support, in short amounts of time with rest intervals inbetween. He lost his oxygen each time, taking more and more time to recover. Today we will just take a step back...put the epi back on to increase his blood pressure that will help him pee once again, and stay on the vent with a rate and no sprints. We had actually gotten the epi turned off yesterday..but chest xray looks more wet today. Epi helps heart function by increasing blood pressure...Tucker really likes the increased blood pressure right now. So, it was turned back on and we once again pray for PEE and for strength to endure.
Hunter gets in at 10am. Todd is going to get her...it will be a nice distraction to have the drama queen back in our lives. :)
