update on Wacky We had great hopes that Wacky would be awake and talking with us this week-end but those hopes were dashed on Friday Up to that point they had managed to get the support he needed from the ventilator down to a level of 8 and lower. 5 is normal
for a healthy person. They had turned off sedation and the pain medicine was being reduced. He had a terrible night on Wednesday and was not doing well on the lower levels of the ventilator. Some blood appeared in his tubes so they took him down for scans on Thursday. Thankfully it showed no blood in the brain but it did show that his lungs were getting worse.
Friday they took him down for more surgery and put in a trach tube. They also took more samples to grow cultures. His earlier cultures had showed 1 gram negative rod and now it shows 2. Also there is another bacteria that they are waiting on results. They have changed his antibiotics again so hopefully this will work. From myself and the family thank-you again for all your prayers and friendship.
