Try Try Again

Today was a great day, we removed your breathing tubs at about 11:00 you were on your own and doing so great that Dad went with Tia Trina and Tio Adrian for fish tacos to celebrate. Not just any fish tacos but Ensenada fish tacos. You will love these one day. Your Mom was having her staples removed and dropping your brother off at Tia JJ's. It was good spending time with Pierce your Mom and I miss him terribly. This time has been trying on all of us, but you are worth it.

At about 2:00 PM you had your first dip in your heart rate, this was followed by other episodes but we were all hopeful, you were down to only two meds and 55% oxygen. Your eyes were open and you were turning your head to look at me. I was ecstatic when you looked over at me while I was singing you the Mr. Fussy Pants song. You were tearing up during my serenade, I would like to think that you were crying over the precious moment and not my mediocre singing voice.

At about 6:00 PM your mother sowed up from hellish traffic, she was exhausted. you started having breathing difficulties and we were all watching over you. I took the first shift and Mom went home after 10:00 to get some rest, after all she is still getting over surgery and pumping every 4 hours. The things women go through. At 1:30AM we noticed that your breathing had become shallow and rapid after a consultation of 3 doctors, 2 nursed, and one concerned dad, an x-ray was done. Sure enough you left lung had stated to collapse. At 2:15 you were re-intubated and things got better. you lasted 12 hours on your own. We will let you rest and try again. it is 4:45 now and I am going to go to sleep so if am making no sense well you know why. -Dad

Two steps forward one step back... All of you get some rest. In a few weeks you will be taking care of him all by yourselves and you will need the rest. God bless you!
