Day 2 post Op

10 am- Second x-ray looked better. They are going to continue CPT every 2 hours till 9pm. They are also going to try and ween him off of the high flow oxygen as well. He gets to eat again!!

6:30 am- We got here early this morning to find out that Eli is having some trouble with his right lung. They believe he may possibly be retaining some fluid, they think it might be a little collapsed...they are not 100% sure sure what is going on. They switched his oxygen to a high flow in hopes to push open his lung. They did try to take his oxygen off yesterday but he quickly de-sated, so it went right back on. His labs have all been coming back fine, even his blood gas. We are waiting for rounds still but anticipate getting some answers soon. They also did some CPT and then they repeated his xray. We hope that it looks better than the last one.

Hope you get to the bottom of the lung issue. I'm glad to hear all the labs are coming back with good results. That's got to be comforting! Davie's glad Eli likes the worm! We love hearing the updates and seeing the pics! Hope rounds brings more good news!

Oh no, that's not good to hear, I hope they find out what's going on and things get better. I'm glad everything else is checking out well. Praying for you and your family.
