Cody is still off the vent. He has been having some problems breathing so they put him on a cpap machine to help him. He seems to be doing better with that. He still could go back on the vent at any time. He has been having troubles taking slow, deep breaths. If you stand beside him and coach him he does better. He still has fluid on hig lungs. They gave him more lasix and that seems to help. He is putting out quite a bit of urine so that's good. He's also coughing and that's getting it loose. He is still following commands. They didn't do the CT Scan today because they thought it would be to much for him being that today they took the vent off. Dr. Gibson talked about getting Cody into his own room once his breathing is under control. His fever got up to 102 tonight but he was sweating. They are hoping the sweating is his bodies natural way of breaking the fever. They gave him more Morphine to relax him. He breathing is really good when he's relaxed. He proved to me that he knows me. I was talking to him and told him I was going back to the waiting room and I loved him so much. I walked out of the room and he sat up in bed and bent his knee up. I ran back in and told him that I wasn't leaving him. My heart smiled even though he was more than likely really scared.
Tonight the nurse said he had his right hand in front of his face and was looking at it. Then he was looking at the pictures that we put on a cork board for him. It's still a waiting game for him to come out of this fully. We pray that his breathing gets under control and he begins to take more baby steps. We are so proud of him and love him so much. The Lord wanted Cody back with us and we are so grateful for that. We are also grateful for the prayers that have been lifted up to God. Please continue.
