Jax update

PICU day two. I went up a little late today because we had a Hopekids movie with the other boys. When I got up there he was off the vent and he was pissed!! He has 3 IV's, I don't know how in the world they got that much access out of him. They pulled his foley, which seems to make him less mad. He is still on pressers (blood pressure medications), but they cut the dose in half. His respiratory panel came back clean, which I knew it would. I knew this wasn't a virus. The intensivist that is on today is one of my favorites. She scares most people, but she gets the job done, and she is the queen of lungs. This women is brilliant. They put him back on the vent about 4, after another chest x-ray came back showing areas of collapse and lots of fluid. They added another diuretic to the mix. His heart is working way to hard, the reason he is still on pressers. The intensivist thinks that something small set him off, like aspirating on Thursday night when he threw up past his nissen. And with the lung problems he's already having right now, he just tanked! I'm going to call his pulmo tomorrow and tell her whats going on. She'll want to know this, because its not good news. His lungs are very sick, and hopefully we have a good plan to try and help them, although I don't know if there's much now that we can do. He is super puffy again in his face and neck, which worries me that it is those veins causing problems.
Pray for my baby boy, his heart and lungs need them badly!!
