The Same, But Better

Filed under: Uncategorized — Vanessa @ 2:45 pm

The chest xray from this morning looked about the same as the one from yesterday.  The pneumothorax definitely isn’t gone, and it really isn’t much better.  BUT.  Brock’s breathing fine, he isn’t in any kind of respiratory distress, he doesn’t act like it bothers him at all, so they’re not going to put in a chest tube.  Praise the Lord!  Also, they let him take off the non rebreather, something he is infinitely happy about.

The plan is to do another chest xray in a few days and see if it’s gotten any better.  And of course to watch him for signs that it’s getting worse.

He had a fever last night and one again today.  We can’t go home until his fevers stop and all of his blood cultures are clear.
