WEDNESDAY...March 18, 2009

This morning Ben's x-ray looked worse than yesterday. His left lung is completely down and so they went UP on his vent settings which means NO trial off the vent which means our chances of getting a LIFE FLIGHT out of here are really good. They also scheduled him every 4 hours to get some 'vest therapy' where they vibrate the heck out of his little lungs to help move the gunk out. (he wears a black vest hooked to a machine) More later....

Sorry to hear that the xray is looking worse. We will continue to pray for you and Benjamin.

The vest is great, Junior has used it for almost 6 years and it has literally been a life saver. Clears so much more then doing percussion by hand.

I'm giggling, because I can hear your voice describing how it shakes the bejeepers out of him (I keep thinking he must be dizzy!)
XOXO Benny!

Sorry he is still having so much trouble with his lungs. I'll pray that you can get the life flight and head for Dartmouth. Then you will be closer to everyone. We love you.
