Today we start looking into a "life flight" to get Benjamin back to NH. I haven't spoken to the discharge planner yet so I'll have to update about that later. Yesterday was a really busy day for Benny, he's on the vent and so they had to change his trach to a 'cuffed' trach. This prevents air from leaking up and out his mouth/nose. They had put a smaller cuffed trach in early Sunday morning because it is difficult to get in. He still had a significant leak and so they had to change him to a bigger one. Thankfully they gave him some sedation for this as it can be quite painful. It took two different respiratory therapists to get it in. He also has been struggling with some fevers, high heart rates and high blood pressure. The blood pressure issue is new for us. This morning they are holding his feeds because his sodium level is borderline dangerously low. They are switching him over to his IV and administering some normal saline and some glucose to hopefully bring the number up. As soon as I know about the life flight info, I'll let you know.
