So Far So Good

Nicholas is doing well with his recovery so far. He is at a rate of 35 breaths per minute and between 25-30% oxygen. They plan on pushing him and extubating him tomorrow. They also plan on starting feeds again tomorrow. He is a little swollen all over and his head is more swollen. His urine output was a little low today but they aren't worried yet. He had good output last night and they are going to watch him very closely. He has been getting morphine a few times a day and will continue that until he is extubated. Then the poor little guy has to deal with the pain because painkillers slow breathing and he can't have them when he has to breathe on his own.

  1. Hey, do you know what today is? Yup! It's your due date. You were gonna be born today but God had different plans. It sure messed up those bookies in Vegas. Ten months from today is Christmas, so maybe start thinking about what you want Santa to bring you.
