Kanyon has had a pretty relaxing day today. His oxygen level on the vent is low, so that is good. They have been using a machine to massage his lungs to help them open up and clear up. That seems to have helped a lot. His cultures all came back negative, but they're going to leave him on the antibiotics for several more days just to make sure. He's still eating like a champ and weighs a whopping 2 lbs. 2.7 oz. We're hoping this time on the vent will give him a chance to pack on a few more ounces. We left him tonight curled up on his tummy with his arms up by his head...very comfy!
I mentioned yesterday about the enlarged ventricle in his brain. I want to ask specific prayers for that. They do know that it is not draining the fluid out, so that is why it is enlarged. It could be because of a clot that has it stopped up..we don't know that for sure. But, we do know that we want that to open up and drain on it own so that they do not have to intervene. Please pray for that to heal and level out...we know that this is another chance for GOD to take care of Kanyon. They will measure his head twice a day to monitor the growth over the next several days, so we'll update you as they update us. Thank you so much.
