We are ON THE MEND! It appears that even though we still do not know the root cause of this infection, that Mattie is improving. He has a decreased need for pain meds and is off the paralytic and blood pressure medications. He is tolerating a slow, steady increase in his Gtube feelings, and we have been able to lower his ventilator settings slowly.
I was so pleased when I saw him looking like this, this morning. I haven’t posted pictures of his most severe days of this illness because it was too disturbing. I feel like we’ve rounded the bend, and feel hopeful. He has periods of wakefulness now, without being extremely agitated and miserable.
Thank you for all of your prayers!
Continued prayers appreciated.
