Good Day


Today has been a relatively good day. They've been slowly weaning Matthew off of the respirator. They've lowered the pressure a bit more, and they've reduced the breathing rate from 40 breathes per minute to 28. They did another ECG and it looked like his PDA was open at one point and closed at another point. They're going to give him a third round of the medicine and see if they can close it for good. They'll do another ECG tomorrow to see how things look.

They're also planning on doing another brain ultrasound tomorrow to see what's happened with his brain bleed. The Neonatologist said that that haven't seen any signs that the bleed has gotten worse, but they won't really know until they do the brain ultrasound. Hopefully we'll know the results tomorrow.
