Too Good to be True





Ethan is doing great still. . . BUT the fluid has built up a little in his right lung pleural space (sound familiar) and he started working harder at breathing in the middle of the night. So this morning they put some CPAP assistance on his trachea. At least we got to hold him last night and we can still see all of his cute face. I don't even consider this a setback. Yesterday was too good to be true. The little guy was tuckered out from too much progress! He has been resting peacefully today recovering from his night of hard work. . .


Much love-Mom
PS: That is just a humidifier to keep his trache and lungs from drying out. Kind of huge and obnoxious don't ya think. . .

Oh my goodness, that facial expression and the little hand up by his face, priceless!!

The huge humidification collars are insane. He ran through so much progress yesterday that he just wanted a little break from all that work! I'm sure things will pick back up again soon. Darn those pleural effusions!

His face says it all though, he looks comfortable, content and cute!
