Morning update

Last night was very long and restless, but I guess thats not new from the last few days. He got up to 5 liters of oxygen, which is as high as our concentrator goes. And that only kept him in the high 80's. I turned up the air too just to see if higher flow would help. This morning he's back down to between 1 and 2 liters. We head back in to our ped today to check a gas, and other things.
I'm not quite sure when to head to the hospital. This is our first illness with the trach. I know I can't transport him to the hospital on 5 liters, I have nothing that will go that high. Although our local fire department knows him quite well, and I know they'd love to help us out! And heck, they haven't seen this house, they might want to check it out!
Thank you dear friends for your prayers and kind words, I feel like we are wrapped in a giant hug! (man was that a cheesy line or what?!)

Oh Lacey! I want to pray for you guys right now. Father God, I ask right now for a special touch from you. Lord I just ask that you touch Jaxson and pray that you heal his body Lord.

Hey Woman, is Jax on a vent at night or anything? That vent makes all the difference for Parker when he is sick.
