August 17, 2009

Overnight Gabe continued to shed a few LB's. He's looking so much better and he even seems to be a little more comfortable. Nurse "L" is making sure that Gabe is only disturbed when he needs to be so that he can continue to get rest. Thank you nurse "L". Still haven't gotten Gabe his spa music hooked up but I'm working on it. This afternoon's x-ray was looking good and they have brought down the oscillator settings even more. He is requiring very little supplementary oxygen and they hope they can get it down even more. Doctor "P" hopes that we can have Gabe ready for surgery later this week. She is going to be calling the operating room and see when they have availability so we can get to the bottom of this. Also forgot to mention that when I saw his x-ray, you could also see part of his face and I was shocked at just how puffy he still is. Under all the edema you could see his bone structure with what seemed like an inch of fluid around him. Absolutely amazing. I will try and post a picture of it later. Thank you for all the prayers and I will update you later tonight hopefully.
