Happy Halloween 2008

It has been a challenging day getting Rudy’s blood pressure stable after the morning attempt at re-inserting the left chest tube.  He is calm and alert this afternoon and the team has decided not to make another attempt at the chest tube today.  They’ll take another chest x-ray in the morning and see.  The good news is that Rudy’s breathing has remained strong throughout the day.  There hasn’t been a need to up the bpm’s on the ventilator and he is holding steady at 14 bpm.  So we continue to wait, wait, wait.  To break up the monotony, we had a little Halloween fun as you can see.  The pediatric patients on the floor had a costume parade earlier today which Rolf and I attended since Rudy was asleep anyway…it was very sweet and they all had a fun time but it was also heart-wrenching to see the kids parade around with their rolling IV towers, etc…  I couldn’t help but think about Wilson (aka Davy Crockett), Max (aka Jack Sparrow) and Olivia (aka a cowgirl) who are, most likely at this moment, getting dressed for their night of candy collecting!!  Have fun little ones!  We’re looking forward to a family visit tomorrow!!

'Not quite sure he likes being a pumpkin...

  5. He looks like he wants to chew someone out for this outfit. I cant blame him, so I blame Trish. Jen and I have a Zultan the Swordsman of the South outfit that we can lend him, its much manlier! Just dont ask why we have it or when it is used.
