Stephen is still in ICU. He has stayed about the same the last couple of days. He’s getting help breathing, using a feeding tube and receiving steroids with his regular medicines. They have had to make a few adjustments. His bronch tube was too low and was causing him to cough so that was raised, his feeding tube came partially out and so they replaced it today and they have been making constant adjustments to the breathing machine (don’t know the name for it!). Tonight I feel like everything is in place for him to rest peacefully and hopefully do some serious healing.
Each day they are doing x-rays, blood tests, kidney tests, and more and more tests. They are very carefully monitoring the interaction of all the medications and the effect on his organs.
We really need these steroids to work! The doctors are continuing to stick with the steroids as the treatment plan for the next couple of days.
I’ll post if anything changes. Have a great Sunday!
