Pierce had a little bit of a rough night last night. Long story short, he kept dropping his sat's and he had a few bradys. They discovered his blood gases were not great, so they needed to make some changes on the ventilator. Fortunately, after constant tweaking of the vent, P seems to be doing much better. While I am so thankful that this was the extent of the problems last night (it could be much, much worse), it is also frustrating because it seems we've taken 3 steps backwards on the vent. We know this is to be expected and it's par for the course, it's just frustrating when it actually does happen. Please pray for Pierce's lungs, which are pretty hazy according to this mornings chest x-ray. Pray that they will clear and that he will be able to be weaned off the ventilator sometime soon. Also continue praying that Pierce will remain free from infection. His feeds are still going well and he's moving up to 8mL's tonight if everything goes well.
Have a great day,
Lindsay, Nik and Pierce
