Nurse Betty was so excited to see Rudy extubated that she ran out to Ralphs and got some more sparkling cider for a repeat toast during the morning shift change! If nothing else, this boy is loved!
Rudy had a decent night but I think the jury is still out this morning. Rudy is working a little harder and his morning xray looks “muddy” on the right side. Although no one is running to get the vent, quiet, careful attention is being paid to Rudy. He’s getting a RT treatment right now and they may need to get another xray so I’ll keep you posted as the day progresses. Please pray that his oxygen sats will stabilize and remain high, that his breathing will calm and his tummy will stop retracting so hard.
My shower is “out of order” today so I’m on the hunt for another shower on a different floor…the picture of me wandering around in my flannel pajamas, with my pink tub of toiletries is one I’m glad isn’t captured on “Rudy’s Beat”!
