Nicholas had another good day. He is doing well on the Vapotherm. He is at 4 liters of flow and between 21-25% oxygen.
He gained 2 ounces yesterday so they gave him a dose of Lasix as a precaution. His urine output is good but that is a big gain so they want to just give him a chance to get rid of any excess fluid he might be holding in.
The orthopedic doctor decided he wants to repeat the hip ultrasound so that is scheduled for tomorrow. I don't know why they waited this long and decided to do it after they canceled it the other day. I guess it is better to be safe than sorry.
His cultures are still negative for infection at day 4. They did the lumbar puncture today to test that for infection too.
