Here is Jake, June 15 when we took him into the ER. The second picture is of him today. He was so sick. I just can't believe that it would happen so fast over night. If you think something is wrong, don't hesitate, take your child to the doctor! If we waited any longer, after surgery, his intestines would have burst. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if something worse happened.
This is dragon breathing treatment. He is tolerating it more. Mixed with saline and Albuterol. This helps with breaking up any mucus in his lungs. He coughs and sneezes during it.
Today, a nurse who will be coming to our house weekly and change Jake's broviac dressing came in and showed us how to flush his IV line. Showing us how crucial it is to make everything so sterile. Another lady came in and gave us a percussion massager. Said it was covered from insurance. Jake loves it. We have to do this twice a week. On his back, front and sides under arm pits.
Here is another picture of today. Will miss all of the nurses but glad to sleep at home. We have a follow up apt with the surgeons, next week, so hope they will see him progressing and then take out the broviac.
