PICU Day 12

Ben had a pretty hard night.
He didn't recover too well from his trach trials.
He had a low-grade fever too.
As a result, his settings were increased on the vent.
No trach trials today.
They are letting him rest.
Looks like Monday's departure date will not happen.

With Kayleigh being sick, i have thought of you and Ben many times....i am sad for her that she is sooooo sick, and yet, i am greatful for a rather healthy child who can recover from such sickness at home.....i feel bad that Ben has to go through so much in his little life....and yet, what a trooper he is....definitely an amazing little spirit that he is!!!

I'm sorry to hear that Ben had a rough night. Even though you probably won't go home Monday, I hope it will be soon!

Shoot! Sweet boy! I thought of us and our boys during Pres. Clayton's talk about burdens. My heart is indeed a reservoir of sympathy for the both of you. I hope tonight is peaceful for Ben.

Oh goodness, well let him rest and maybe tomorrow you can try again. These kids just love to keep us on our toes. How are you holding up? I know being in the hospital for so long gets weary, but hang in there. Praying daily for you guys and hopefully he will come back home very soon! :) Big Huggles from us :D

Benji looks tired, and so does his Mom. Hope it won't be long before he is on the mend and ready to head for his own bed at home.
