Vent Clinic

Yet another vent clinic under our belts, and we have some good news! (I like going to vent clinic for that very reason--it's always good news and excellents all around...) Dakin's chest x-ray looked 'excellent' as were his blood gases. His weight gain was a little slow, but not enough for the dietician to bug about it. In fact, she said we could just check in with her every month or so instead of every week as we had been doing! YAY! In addition to that, Dr. C (pulmonologist) said that this summer we will be working on doing trach collar trials (where we take him off the ventilators for a little while) and getting him off his diuretics and his heart meds!! Ah, I love vent clinic. All they say is how good he looks. It's always a good visit. Yippee!!
