Three Weeks after Surgery

Today has brought some more progress. Cameron had been handling his tube feeds, so they have been able to slowly increase the amount he is getting. He has been getting TPN, nutrition through an IV, with the increase of feeds they can decrease the TPN. The doctors have also been trying to decrease his oxygen he is on, but it has been a very slow process. Today they were able to make a change to high flow oxygen. So far he seems be handling the change well.

On Friday, they hope to put a PIC line in and it will replace his IV line. The PIC line will be the long term line for his 6 weeks of antibiotics. We are still learning about this procedure on Friday, but most likely he will need to be put back on the ventilator (breathing tube). The hope is that once he is awake again after the procedure that the breathing tube will be able to come right back out.

Thanks for your prayers and support!
