My dear friend Laura, nurse extraordinaire, visited and took me to the Intensive Care Nursery reunion barbeque. It was nice to get out. I met a baby who just went home on a ventilator. It was nice to see he was so portable. The technology is quite amazing. (As was the baby!)

Admission 3, Day 2
So, no big news. Ambrose continues to be on CPAP at 30%-40% O2. He continued having fevers over night, which cause him to have increased seizure activity. He has had Ativan several times, so he is pretty sleepy. No significant findings with any of his cultures. I think he has had a viral pneumonia all along. That would not respond to antibiotics. The CPAP helps enough that he seems better but after a few days off it catches up with him.
