It’s 2:20pm and Rudy continues to breathe on his own. I held him for about 90 minutes and he calmed down and dosed for a few minutes. He’s now back in his favorite bouncy chair and is calm…looking around and getting used to no longer breathing through a straw!!! His numbers look good right now…heart rate is down and oxygen sats are okay but could be higher. He doesn’t look as blue as he was earlier…so far, so good. We’re all fixated on the monitor…maddening!
Drs. Robert, (Papa) Andy, Brian, Dan, Mary, Sonal, Lee, Ryan and, of course, Rick have all been in to check on our little fighter…if he’s still off the vent at afternoon rounds, the sparkling cider shall be opened and poured in celebration!!! Thank you, thank you – please keep praying!
