Boring is Good

In the hospital world, we've come to learn that boring is good. Ramsey hasn't learned that yet, and tonight he decided to shake things up a bit. His oxygen dropped to around 85, so they put the nasal canula back in and did an X-Ray. The X-Ray showed that he is retaining fluid so they decided to give him lasix again. This is nothing new, we experienced this in the NICU, still it's too bad that we had to experience it again at this stage. This type of incident makes the thought of taking him home a bit unnerving because there were no signs of problems, except for the numbers on the monitors.

He took 40 ml for each bottle today. He handled it well, aside from tiring a bit.


  1. i'll be praying for little ramsey tonight as i lay down to sleep. they do make home oxymeters, too. ask them about one when they start talking about discharge. we came home (for the little bit we were home before returning to prep for heart surgery next week) on oxygen and with an o2 monitor. gives some AMAZING peace of mind- especially at night when he's sleeping. just a thought... :o)

  2. Remember....GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU...he still has Ramsey in his hands. He is also taking care of you and Dennis. He will get you through this. LOVE YOU ALL.
