Sam has woken happy and slightly improved. He is still on the ward and the plan is for him to have regular nebuliser followed by chest physio and suction. He's just had his first onslaught and they are due back in 3 hours. For now he is sitting up playing with his cars and garage with a face mask blasting humidified oxygen (5 litres) at him. He is being a star at keeping his mask on, but if he takes it off I confiscate a car.... So that keeps the mask on.
Gastro and Respiratory teams have both been.. All are happy with his slight clinical improvement and agree we plod on with the interventions above to help clear his lungs and try to decrease his oxygen. Slow and steady.
The girls happily ran off to school excited to be heading home to dear friends for the afternoon and sleep over. This means that Francis can come in tonight and we can see each other for the first time in nearly a month..... Ooh a Starship date, cant buy them on Grab One!
Thanks for the texts, meals, love for us and the kids. My body might be weary but my heart is full!
