Sunday morning update

Today's goal is to get him off the oxygen so he can get out of the PICU and onto a regular floor. He stayed on 0.5 liters all night and did not desat. When I came in this morning he sounds a little junky like he needed to be suctioned. He also has developed a rash on his right cheek, lip, down his neck, and on his abdomen. The PICU doctor agrees that it looks like cold sores. They are going to start him on meds for that. I feel bad he gets it from me. I remember getting my 1st cold sore when I was 4 or 5. My mom gets them...then me...and now Ava and Jacob. They always show up when your body is stressed. I had them nearly nonstop once the babies were born and the weeks before. I always tried to be careful, but apparently they have been passed on :-(


  1. Thinking and praying for him Jennifer god love his little heart.

  2. Oh, I'm sorry to hear you're back in the hospital. That's horrible. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery and worthwhile doctors.
