Still in PICU

Nothing new as of today. Santino is still intubated and on a painkiller/paralytic. It is so hard seeing my soon to be 5 month old not moving around and not smiling. He was starting to become a little more active now and it is so fun to watch him grow. Now we are at a stand still. I am thankful he is being well taken care of and looks better.
The doctors are still not sure what type of infection he is fighting. They have given him Tameflu ? incase it is H1N1. No more blood transfusions because his hemoglobin is much better. The respiratory nurses are suctioning out his lungs to get all the gunk out. His right lung looks good but his left side is still a little junky. They haven't needed to give him a breathing treatment since Monday evening. Whatever it is he seems to be fighting it. His fever has gone away as well. I know I am rambling, I'm just a little sleep deprived.
I will be going home tonight and John will stay with the lil guy. I miss my big kids and need to give them some hugs. Unfortunately I'm picking them up from school and taking them to the pediatrician to get the H1N1 shot. They won't be too excited to see me!
Thank you all for your prayers and concerns. We are hanging in there. Our spirits are still good. John and I say the nurses must think we are nuts because how much we are still able to laugh at things. Laughter is good or we would go nuts!

In His Grace,
Yvette
