THAT is how long we've been here. My hopes for a short stay faded away after the news of Ben's x-ray on Wednesday. It was worse than when we arrived. Thursday it was even WORSE. Today? No change really...if anything it's a smidge better. I left Ben's hospital room around 1pm today, AFTER I had a nap with him. It felt good to snuggle with him before leaving for home. Rumor has it that he even got a nice bath and hairwash today. That always makes me happy when I come back to a freshly bathed boy. I'm not sure how long we'll be in the PICU. There is a lot of work to be done to try and inflate his left lung. He's on pretty high vent settings right now and it hasn't seemed to help. Dr. Braga mentioned a brochoscopy if things aren't better after the weekend. They started vancomycin again to see if he improves with antibiotics. I'll update more tomorrow.
