Back at the hospital. During rounds the Dr said he was pleased with how J is handling ECMO. They are planning on aggressively treating and opening the lungs. So far the cultures from the lung loogies are coming back negative- no infections. We are going to try Metaneb today and see how he tolerates it. Metaneb is a newer procedure and it doesn't look like it has ever been used with ECMO, so we are going to start slowly and cautiously. Hopefully it will work!
I got Little Man into the
clinic this morning and the strep test was negative but his throat is
still really sore. Fever was gone, though. My brother bought Hubs and
me large packs of Emergen C and another Immune booster thing...hopefully
it will help us to stay healthy. But just in case, I'm rocking a
stylish green face mask in the room and not getting too close to my sweet
I brought him some fun love from home today- dinos
galore!! He has soft dinos in his bed, plastic dinos on his shelf, a
dino quilt covering his precious tummy and toes. I also brought my
ipod and little stereo in so he can listen to some good music even when
the awesome music therapy lady isn't serenading him. The doctor asked
us to save the AC/DC until he is off sedation, but Radiohead and Bocceli
have worked well this morning.
Our nurses are going to go into
sugar comas with all the candy we have in the room. So far they like us
and we love them, so this is working out well! I cannot say enough
positive things about the care Jameson has been getting since this
began. We love Children's and I am so grateful that we were here when
this all happened. God is so good to us and I absolutely believe he put
us here for a reason. Our Baby J is in excellent hands.
