August 5, 2009

Gabe has a lot going on this morning and today. This morning they were moving Gabe and his left chest tube was dislodged which will probably need to be replaced since it was draining fluid. However, they want to give it a chance and see what happens on the next x-ray. Then they placed a new chest tube on the right side. Poor little man is a trooper and is doing quite well considering what is going on. They wanted to get an CT at noon, but his lungs are not in tip top shape. The lungs are open but there are small areas of collapse and the team wants them to look a little bit better. So they are giving him some vigorous breathing treatment in hope of opening him up before the next CT opening at 3 p.m. We will find out shortly. Sorry about not posting for the last two days. I write the post before and then just copy and paste it to the blog, but I barely have time to use the restroom let alone update the blog. I'm going to try to start waking up extra early to do it before Shannon and Kayla wake up in the morning. Here are a few pictures from around Gabe's bed I snapped the other night. Enjoy and I will update you all later. Let pray that we get down to CT and show them that Gabe doesn't have any structural problems or lung issues and that he just has lots of goobers.
