UPDATE ON BEN

This boy is TIRED!
That's what happens when you go on road trips at midnight. Dr. Filiano sent Ben for a CAT scan last night due to some seizure activity the last couple of days. It was quite the process as he is hooked up to a vent, oxygen, a monitor, feeding pump, etc. I'll find out later today what they saw. He has been peeing a lot too. They can't seem to figure out why. All of his labs look normal. They always chalk stuff like that up to his neurological issues. The good news is that they went down just a smidge on his PEEP settings. (on the vent) It's a step in the right direction. His x-ray looked good on those settings as of last night. I'm sure if it continues to look good, Dr. Filiano will continue to wean him down.
