We are still at the hospital. E has been here since Monday night but it is looking like tomorrow he may be able to go home. Yesterday they did another chest x-ray since his progress has been slow. The x-ray showed no changes, but he has marked improvement when listening to his lungs. His right lung has the most congestion. Also yesterday they removed him from the IV fluids to encourage him to drink. He is drinking now but not much.
Today they removed the oxygen and will be monitoring his oxygen levels all day and through the night to see if it is okay to go home without it. So far he is doing well while awake but decreases while sleeping. He continues to have breathing treatments every 4 hours and will go home with the nebulizer. Overall though he is looking and acting much better. He is certainly bored of being stuck in bed. He has watched a bazillion Winnie-the-Pooh movies and today was trying to use the bed as a slide! lol
I am anxious to get home and be a family again. I miss my other children and look forward to see them all playing together again. It has been a very long week. Thank you for your continued prayers. Keep them coming, he still has a lot of healing to do.
