July 13, 2009

Gabe has been struggling with a collapsed left lung for the past five days. He is now back on the oscillator which is a big setback. His CO2 levels have been a bit high which is causing his blood to be acidic. Doctors are starting him on some heavy duty antibiotics for a possible infection from and unknown source. Gabe’s CO2 levels and O2 levels fluctuated throughout the day and night. Gabe’s edema (fluid on his body) is coming back and he is getting a bit puffy. Gabe also received a couple rounds of blood to help with his low blood pressure, since they are taking so much for constant testing. They also had to give him some Dopamine to help him with his blood pressure
