Another Night

Another night gone...not a lot of improvement from the first night.
Ben's blood pressure continued to be 70/30 throughout the night.
we had to tip his bed towards his head again,
gave him many IV boluses,
held his feeds,
lots of neb treatments to stimulate
and more oxygen to get him through the night.
Not sure what today will bring.
We're waiting for Dr. Filiano to arrive.
Here is the VERY protected IV
that is extremely important to this stay.
It took them 20 attempts
to finally get this one.
I've seen the battle wounds all over his body.

Okay, I didn't know you were there Ben, I'm sory! It's been three days. Shame on Mom for not telling us sooner! Glad you're not upside down anymore, glad you're not getting any more pokes, and glad you're finally on the mend. We love you!
