Evan has had a busy morning today. He woke up with a fever and had some vomiting. We think he may have aspirated which basically means that fluid went down the wrong pipe and went into his lungs this in turn has caused Evan to require more oxygen so he is now on a nose cannula which is delivering a liter of oxygen to help him and he seems to be doing well. In order to give his stomach a rest they have stopped feeds and he is getting fluids via is IV. They are also working with their GI department to come up with a game plan to determine if we can start the feeds again. This marks the second day that he has spiked a fever; yesterday he spiked one in the morning but it quickly broke and he had a great day. Since he spiked a fever again they started antibiotics as a precaution as well as to help his lungs if he in fact aspirated.
They did blood work this morning and all came back normal except for his potassium levels so they are adding some potassium to the fluids he is getting. He was very lethargic this morning but after a couple cat naps he is looking much better and is talking.
We know God is working so we smile!
This was yesterday pre nose cannula:
