Wednesday...

Ben did NOT have a good night after I tucked him in. He started to need LOTS of suctioning and attention. He wasn't on any oxygen when we got up to his room and now he's needing about 40% or so. They have stopped his feeds wondering if he is aspirating - everything seemed to have happend after they started them. He isn't peeing well now even with lots of IV fluids. His secretions are COPIOUS! The nurses haven't left his room all night. They have ordered another chest x-ray to see if he's worse. His one from yesterday showed a lower left lobe focal pneumonia. They will probably look at his nissan to see if things are getting loose causing possible aspiration. That's all I know for now. I'll update when I know more.

I hope things improve for him soon. I am sure your family is missing you, but i am glad that the nurses and hospital there in Utah are taking good care of him.
