I woke up this morning to more respiratory distress coming from Ben. His lungs sounded like a washing machine with a side of wheezing. He spiked a fever last night and this morning. The doctor went up on his vent settings and oxygen to support him more. Ben seemed to respond well to the increased support as he settled down fairly soon after the changes were made. Tomorrow morning he is scheduled for a PICC line placement. Because of his worsened condition, they feel he will have need for a reliable line as this might be a lengthy stay.
This picture makes me laugh. He hasn't slept much in the last couple of days so he is TIRED. I needed to give him a bath and kept waiting for him to wake up. Since he's refusing to wake up today, I went ahead and decided to bathe him anyway. He was sound asleep through the whole bath, silly boy.
