Ok Day for Being Sick

Nicholas has had an ok day. His ventilator setting is still at 10 breaths per minute and he has been around 21% oxygen (room air or what we breathe) all day.

They increased his feeds to 15.3 ml an hour.

They changed his antibiotic to one that the bacteria he has is more sensitive to. They are going to do repeat blood and CSF cultures every few day until the infection is gone. The ultrasounds on his heart and hips were fine and the bacteria hasn't attached to them.

He was awake and looks good so lets hope that the antibiotics are working and he will get over this infection quickly.
