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!
