NO CHANGE

Today was a more stable day for me...and Ben.  Stability is good.  Ben's lung has not really changed from yesterday.  My positively optomistic NP, Marcy, thought it looked "a smidge" better.  I'll take it.  Ben's getting a serious workout every 4 hours.  They literally tip him onto his head via the bed and use the cough assist on him and then add some recruitment breaths through the vent.  He has excessive amounts of copious secretions.  They are amazed how much they get out of him.  Me?  I kissed his sweet cheeks and headed home to see my older two play in their basketball games.  Tomorrow I coach Stevie in hers.  I live for basketball and it's a nice break from the hospital.  My body is tired.  I'm hoping to refill my lamp while home with my family.  Heaven knows...I'm gonna need it.

Glad you were able to get home for the games and see the rest of the family. Ben will feel better when he snuggles with his sister tonight. Will see you tomorrow I hope. Love you :)
