Another long day
Well, Andrew still isn't improving. We had rapid response come to assess him. They are a group of people from the PICU and respiratory specialists. They took another X-ray and it looks almost the same as the previous x-ray with a possible small improvement. His lungs are still fuzzy. They are still giving him lots of lasix (a fast acting diuretic) to try to get the fluid off his lungs. Anyway, Andrew is a fighter and has been able to sustain over 90 breaths per minute for a few days straight. We are just hoping that he can pull out of this before he gets too tired of breathing and ends up in the PICU.
