Two Big Days

Yesterday and today have been big days for Cameron, with lots of good progress. Yesterday Cameron got off the RAM cannula with the ventilator. He did great and his oxygen was actually higher on the high flow. He likes to do things his own way and when his blood gas looked better after going down on oxygen, I thought it was quite funny and great. They also started him on a little bit of feeds yesterday. Cameron got a new cousin yesterday! Javan and Josie now have a beautiful baby boy, Weston Reed (7lbs, 20 inches). We are so excited and I can't wait to see him.

Cameron did good overnight and today brought more good progress. The doctors are slowly working on changing his medications to go through his g-tube. They are still having a hard time getting his electrolytes stable. The biggest change today was that they moved Cameron off of high flow and put him on low flow/regular oxygen setup. He did really good with the change and his oxygen was even higher in the 90s. The highest I saw today was 99! When they first made the change this morning, he was working harder the breath when he was awake. As the day went on, he seems to be breathing more comfortably. We are so excited for the changes that have been made and thankful how good he is doing with them. We will stay in the PICU for at least the weekend, as they work on increasing his feeds and getting his electrolytes where they should be. Cameron continues to be happy and smile and talk to us.
