This picture is actually from yesterday as we didn’t really get any good ones from today. So what can I say about today? Well not much. Greyson’s c02 was 72 last night so you all know there were some problems. The Dr. changed Greyson’s DEX order to Q12, which means he will now get the steroids every 12 hours. Basically this wasn’t a direct result of the bad c02 last night, but due to the fact that Greyson doesn’t seem to be progressing at a good rate.
The truth is the longer this goes, the harder it gets. Of course we are happy and thankful for his progress, but the cumulative stress of it all is definately taking its toll. While ours is not in trouble, I can see why situations like this destroy many marriages. I pray almost daily for all the other couples that are in the NICU that God will work in their lives as they walk through these difficult days.
Grammie Jo and Stacy apparently allowed Greyson to sleep today because he woke up for me while stacy took Joanne to the airport. We played games like “open your hand and then grab my finger” (both right and left handed versions of this game). He did really well with his oxygenation the whole time, and spend a long time at 28 percent oxygen. This is the first time he’s been below 30 percent oxygen on the canula ever. That’s a good sign I think.
