Singleton UMC Update on Baby Tate March 4th
March 4, 2019 by
So we just got update from the doctor. Numbers are great! They tried weaning down some settings on the ventilator and it made his gas go back up so they put it back where it was. They have also changed his chest tube from constant suction to just water seal which means if something needs to come out it can but it’s no longer actively suctioning. Next step is to hopefully take out chest tube tomorrow. They said his pneumothorax looks like it is almost gone and doesn’t appear to be coming back. In reference to the interstitial emphysema they won’t really be able to look at that clearly until he’s off the ventilator and breathing on his own. Hopefully over the next little bit they are planning on trying to wean him down slowly. Doctor said that once he’s off the ventilator she feels like he will be very strong!
Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow! Singleton : Family Keep praying!!!!!
