Another day.

Well, Wyatt is still with us...Friday he stretched my worry to the limit as his heart rates were sitting l-o-w in the 30's. And last night he stretched us a bit further between the hours of 2:45 and 6am. His oxygen saturations continued to drop low and stay low (again), his heart rates were also dropping with the first round of desats. We maxed out the supplemental O2 again, ran a cocktail of nebulizer treatments, suctioned what we could, repositioned him, etc. After some intensive work he/we managed to bring them up just enough that I thought we could breath a small sigh of relief. So much for that silly thought of mine. The second round started soon after, but at that point he was fighting and trying to breath over his set breath rate. He just couldn't get enough oxygen to bring the numbers up. His O2 sats stayed at 79 and 80 for some time before climbing to 84 where it hung out for bit. Right now he's on 10L of supplemental oxygen, with the vent. His o2 sats are in a good place for the time being and his heart rate is steady. He's wake-able and responsive this morning, which is good.

I was relieved and happy to see the sun rising this morning- it's another day.
