Not much more news again tonight. Oli is good, his brain and the lungs have definitely begun talking more as his CO2 levels are brilliant and if he continues to breathe deeply then he may only need two more nights on neve, hooray!
The central line in his neck which takes the antibiotics into his system packed up this eve, just as he was calming down for the day. After one numpty doctor and three numpty failed attempts to re-site the line in his arm, a clever nurse remembered his portacath (after some gentle prompting from Oli’s Mum) and the line was sited in one attempt.
We left Oli trying to get over the stress by chilling with his Dad. Now he has no annoying lines in his neck, I hope he sleeps better, we’ll see.
***Now we’ve reached a kind of plateau where progress is good and steady, I might not update each evening unless there is something I think you’d like to know. So from now on no news is good news and written news is super news x***
