Well, I have fallen behind in blogging again. Thanks for being so patient! :) I've not had as much time to write and at the end of the day I'm pooped! Daylon is making great head way towards getting off the ventilator. I love progress! He's had 4 breathing trials where the vent turns quits working for him and it's all up to him to stay in the game. If he were to slack off or start breathing too quickly or something, the vent would kick in and come to the rescue. The doctors are all amazed at how well he's doing. They told me they can't believe he's the same kid from last week. With any luck, we could be back on 5D this time next week. The only down side is that with less sedation, I'm literally holding him down to keep him from beating himself, several times a day.
Daylon is peeing once or twice a day now and last night they put him on a diuretic. His Creatinine level is just two smidgens away from "normal"! I wish you all could be here today when the doctors came in to the room to tell us they think we should remove the DNR from Daylon's chart! I could have literally kicked my heels up! I know the doctors think that all this progress is just unexplainable, but I know better. I know that there is the faith and prayers of more people than we'll ever know moving Daylon (and our family) along. Modern medicine is great, and works wonders, but in the end, it's all up to Him. Seriously, think of where we were just 7 days ago...amazing!
I need to go get Brian from the airport. Woo-Hoo! I miss him so much! This is the longest we've ever been apart since we've been together! More tomorrow! Oh, I got some fun pictures and a CRAZY story for ya all! Sweet dreams!
