Morning rounds 10:22am September 1st

So overnight Owen did pretty well.  When we left last night Owen had a little bit of oxygen through the nasal canula because his pulse ox was kind of low.  They took off the oxygen around 5am and since then he has been sating in the upper 70's low 80's for oxygen saturation.  He ate well over night too, and he is still eating while he is awake, so hopefully that will hold for when we go home, it will be so much easier if he will eat when he is awake.

Except for when we first got here this morning and Owen was a little fussy, he has been pretty happy.  Nothing really changed during rounds this morning.  We won't be going home today like Cassie thought we might yesterday.  They want to observe Owen for at least another day because they took out his chest tubes so early.  They also want to keep him on a diuretic to make sure that he doesn't start accumulating fluid on his lungs.  So now today, I think they will be weening him off of the diuretic which they are giving twice a day (down from three times a day) and if his lungs are looking clear tomorrow we might just be able to go home.
