So the doctor explained that Josh is better (especially when this particular on-call doc saw him, which was Tuesday, which was probably the worst day), but that we do need to get past the oxygen barrier overnight to ensure that when he goes home, that he will be ok without needing oxygen. So he’s been […]

Timeline may be back up in the air after last night, but we’ll have more info after we talk to the doctor at rounds this morning… Last night was a little rough. After Josh went 7 hours yesterday without oxygen, he couldn’t maintain the needed blood saturation level, so was placed back on at the […]

We had to put Joshie back on oxygen for at least a while…he just wasn’t able to keep his blood oxygen level stable where the doctor wanted it. So he’s back on what basically is a trickle, 1/8 LPM. But he did go several hours without it. On a related note, I am apparently a […]

Josh has been nursing well and fairly regularly, but there’s still congestion, and his respiration rate is still a bit higher than it should be. But things are improving, and he’s doing more of his wake time during the day, which shows that he is feeling better. He’s not been feverish for a couple days […]

While watching over Joshua, have the Animal Planet channel on with a program on about Animal EMT’s. Homeless man whose dog got hit by a car, and because he cannot afford to take her to a vet, his only choices are to turn over the dog, or for the police to be called and the […]

So our own doctor was finally back in town and did rounds this morning. He’s always been very supportive of how we parent and the way we make the choices that we do…but he also is very upfront with information. And so it was with the timeline.

During our time here, we’ve had some great nurses, some ok nurses, and some not-so-good nurses. Last night we had a situation with a nurse that was more on the latter part of that scale…she chose to do certain things without discussing with us (at one point, she was orienting a new nurse to the […]
