As the big kids headed off to school this morning, Wilson looked back at me, gave me a wave and said “Bye Mom, we’ll see you when we see you”. Eventhough everyone was disappointed Rudy didn’t come home with Daddy yesterday and I had to return to Los Angeles, all were agreeable and well-adjusted this morning. -Good kids.
By the time I got to UCLA, Rudy was breathing room air. Dr. Andy wants to observe Rudy for 24 hours without oxygen before making plans to discharge him. As of early this afternoon, the plan was to send Rudy home tomorrow morning after rounds. Rudy did have a few bouts with low sats throughout the day and then this evening, his sats stayed in the 30s consistently for over 12 minutes!! He had to be put back on oxygen and is now resting with sats in the low 60s with 30% oxygen. I’m not quite sure what this means for our plans to discharge tomorrow…I’ll keep you posted and publish an update in the morning with our plan for the day. It goes without saying that I hope the gang at home sees us sooner rather than later! 🙂
