They have pulled Cody off the vent. He is having some trouble breathing. The doctor said there is a possibility that he could go back on it today. We pray that they don't have to do that. Pray that he starts to get used to breathing on his own. It will be very hard on him if they have to reinsert the tube.
We had stepped back there and was standing by the desk talking to his neurologist, Dr. Lawton. I was watching Cody and the respiratory therapist was giving him a breathing treatment. She asked him if he was having troubles breathing, he shook his head yes. She then asked him if this was helping and he shook his head no.
The nuerologist said he was pleasently suprised by Cody. He was still reserved, said he still should be doing more. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT????? I know he's just doing his job! He can't give us false hope. They are concerned about his vision. He's not focusing very well. He seems to think his body is holding on to medicine longer then it should. They are sending him for a CT Scan today to check that out.
Carla, his day nurse, asked him if he wanted some more Morphine. Cody shook his head side to side. Not just a head shake -they don't think he wants any of it anymore because it makes him groggy and makes him sleep. He wants to be awake so bad.
We are praying they don't have to intebate him again. And he tolerates his breathing well. We also pray the CT Scan comes back good.
His fever has gone down. So the antibiotics are working. God is amazing!
We praise You Lord because, "you are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples." Psalm 77:14
