No Change

by

Rudy spent Veteran’s Day much like he spent Election Day one week ago…sleeping.  He did complete three 2-hour sprints successfully which nurse Katrine and I celebrated this evening.  It seems like we’re making progress with the sprints but he does seem to do better with them when he is sleeping.  When he is awake, he struggles more for his breaths so I’m praying he will learn how to calm himself down while awake and settle into a relaxed breathing pattern.  On the list for tomorrow?…More sprinting and sleeping. 

The fluid from his chest tube on his right side is still draining – fluctuating a bit in the amount so they are “keeping an eye on it”.  I think everyone would be relieved if it just stopped completely.  It remains an issue until it does.

It’s quite late and Rudy is sleeping so I think I’ll hit the hay as well…Sleep tight!

    I just wanted you guys (and Rudy) to know I still am checking on him often, even if I am not in the unit right now! He is strong (as are you both)! You all are in my thoughts. 🙂

    I can only imagine how wonderful to see him progress to a crib and baby seat. To see him grow, even ever so much, is a precious gift. Love to you all.

    Rudy’s progress to his “big bed” – the crib – brought tears to my eyes. Such good news. This baby is so special. God blessed him with a wonderfully strong will and incredible parents.
