So cozy...

So cozy...

 

Okay, these pictures really don’t do him justice but I walked into Rudy’s room last night after the evening shift change to find the little guy snuggled so sweetly…Nurse Pam had run her tests, cleaned him all up and got him all settled on his side.  He looked like such a big boy cuddled up to Pooh!  Around 10pm he got turned to the other side and slept very comfortably and soundly all night long!  So sweet!

 

 

Sleep tight...

Sleep tight...

 

Yesterday was uneventful…It was fun to see Dr. Robert back on the floor after a couple of weeks.  Because Rudy’s surgical procedure was postponed, he spent the day just hanging out.  He battled high blood pressure but didn’t seem too bugged by it.  Yesterday was one of those fun days with Nurse Denise where he was awake and alert a good bit of the day but comfortable and not anguished.  The fluid draining from Rudy’s lungs has remained the same…they will continue to monitor this the next couple of days and then decide whether or not to do the surgery on Monday.  The big news of the day came when we got the test results back from the Infectious Diseases people confirming that Rudy is infection-free so the order came to take him off of three antibiotics!  Yippy!  He also had a couple of successful hour-long ventilator sprints again which is always encouraging so I believe the plan for today will be to continue exercising his lungs.

Rolf came back to UCLA early this morning and we will both head home to Santa Barbara late tonight for some time with the kids and the, always special, Rescue Mission Recovery Program Graduation tomorrow night.
