Yesterday Ben came off the vent for a little while and ended up collapsing his left lung again. (sigh) There are many decisions to make as to how we are going to get Ben home. It may or may not involve the vent. If you look at Ben's right arm in the picture, you'll notice some drawings. He has cellulitis. We drew on his arm to make sure it wasn't spreading. They started him on IV vancomyocin. It looks much better after three days. I'm going home tonight to celebrate my birthday with my husband and kids, so I'll update more again tomorrow.
