As a whole, his lungs are on the upswing. Every day now they are slightly better :) :)
We continue to monitor him closely for all sorts of 'odd' things. The only large scare I had today was when his heart rate was 55 - 60 beats/minute for several minutes. Jacob's norm is around 100 beats/minute. He didn't look in distress, so there wasn't a whole lot I could do. I'm unsure what the irregularity means.
Today our visiting nurse came. She truly is a gem. She knows Jacob very well, as she's the one in the community who's followed him since the first full day we were home with him (back when he was 6 weeks old.)
|Not sure how, but Jacob slept through the entire dressing change. That sure makes life MUCH easier.|
We know we have a dedicated nurse when...yesterday was her day off, but she still came to the meeting here, so she could take it all in, and be on the same page as everyone else. That takes a special person. Again, we are provided for, beyond what we deserve. It is so humbling how God has provided us with such fantastic support. “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are His judgements, and His ways past finding out!” Ro 11:33
|The instant the stethoscope was on him, he woke up and started crying. That's super loud in the ears.|
Good thing the nurse is a good sport :)
