What's wrong Brosie?

Not sure what is going on but Ambrose is again having a difficult day.
He has been on his home vent since Thurs afternoon. Seemed to adjust to it just fine.
Then he started needing more O2 (up to 4L from 1L) to keep his sats up and was quite agitated. He sounds pretty clear. They took an Xray and it looked pretty much the same. Scoped his trach - looks fine. He had a low grade fever. Got some Tylenol and settled down but continued needing more O2. They also increased his pressure support from 5 to 8. They are not sure what the problem is and say it may be just him adjusting to the different vent but I'm not sure I buy that.
