Well, the little man is resting much better. He is calm and "pink" (meaning he's not pale like he was last night..the new blood has been good for him). His blood pressure has leveled out now that things have settled down. His echocardiogram came back good..YEAH! One of his blood cultures came back and was negative..not infection with that one. They are waiting on one more that will be back tomorrow so hopefully that one will be negative too. They are going to check his white blood cell counts again tomorrow and make sure those levels are still good. If all of that goes well, they will take him off of the antibiotics that they've had him on while they were waiting to hear back from these tests. He is still tolerating his feeds-- way to go, we want to keep that up. We felt good when we went in tonight. He was resting comfortably, but he did peek one eye open at us for a little bit. We pray that he will rest up and continue to strengthen his lungs and his whole body so that he can be ready when they take him off again. His nurese have worked really hard these last couple of days with him....he's been pretty demanding, but they've done a great job! Thanks for the prayers, keep em going!
