Here are some recent pictures of Ben. We were snuggling together on my bed. I can't do this for very long anymore because sadly he needs the vent. The more and more time passes the less and less he tolerates being off the vent. Just this morning I took him off so that I could bring him downstairs for the day and he immediately dropped his saturations. It was sobering. Lately his vent has been 'high alarming'. His PIPS are high. His secretions are more copious and yellow. I'm fearing another collapse. He's still has a few more days of IV antibiotics and his oral one too. I will be so sad if he becomes sick OVER his antibiotics. His birthday is Sunday. He's turning 8. He's known for skipping out on his own party. Ben's what we kindly refer to as a party pooper. I'm much appreciate it if you could keep him in your prayers this weekend. Thank you!!!
