PICU Day 16

A good day today...

Noah spent all of his awake time off CPAP, and just on nasal prongs for oxygen. I still don't like the way he works to breathe, but he is quite comfortable and certainly not in distress. He tires so quickly though...don't know what we would do without Treehouse and his Baby Noah to lie and watch all day. Had a bit of a scare this morning when he spiked a fever. Never a good thing for Noah, but especially worrisome with his central line. If he spikes again, we will have to draw a blood culture from the line. But I think he just wanted to wake me up this morning. The staff is being very cautious with him and are still worried about sending him to the ward. They have seen just how rapidly he can change. But we are making good progress and will hopefully head there soon.

Nice to hear that Noah had a good day today. Bummer on the fever...I guess he just wants everyone to be on their toes! Hope is was a fluke and doesn't return. Hugs and prayers...I miss you!
