Wednesday Evening

Tonight Ben has finally started to settle down. It's been a LONG day of suctioning and coughing for his poor little body. I'm grateful that he is able to rest some at this point. He's still on 40% oxygen and his chest x-ray from earlier shows the pneumonia to be a little bigger than yesterday. They decided to place an NJ tube - which goes in his nose, past the stomach, straight into his small intestine - so that he could get some nutrition. They'll pursue a swallow study to see if he is aspirating before using his g-tube again. Hopefully we'll both be able to rest some tonight.
