Facebook update from Help Anton

They didn't end up putting Anton on the oscillating vent because he was finally able to recover. His O2 saturations are 97% and he is on 50% oxygen and 15 peep. He is not breathing on his own anymore though, the vent is doing all the breathing for him. They have no idea why he was having such a hard time breathing and it could still get worse. The surgeon came by to look at his incision and to change the dressing, he said it looked great and was healing nicely. When you are in the ICU they do rounds in the hall in front of each child's room. There are ICU doctors, pharmacist, nurses, our BMT doctors, respiratory therapist, and I'm not sure who else. It is so intimidating going out there because there are so many people but it is also really neat to listen to them talk about Anton and come up with a plan for his care. My little sister went back home today but my big sister is still here as well as Jason's parents. They just did an ultrasound of his lungs and he doesn't have very much fluid on them which is great. I will keep yall update. - November 29, 2015 at 11:05AM
