Yep. Dakin is back to nearly baseline, and I am SO glad. I was really starting to get afraid that this was his new baseline and he would need oxygen all the time. But once we started concentrating his CPT on that upper right lobe, it just opened right up and he is back on room air with a lovely 97-100% O2 saturation. Hooray! All things considered, he weathered this cold pretty well--we just weren't getting the right area of his lungs with the CPT.
We had a lovely day today--he helped me clean the house (which had been sorely neglected since he had been sick), and played all afternoon. Tonight he rocked out to his Ma Mao music (Imagination Movers) and entertained everyone by saying the words along with the music and dancing. He's in bed early since he decided not to take a nap for the second day in a row.
Quick Conversations with Dakin entry:
Mommy: Dakin, are you a cuteface?
See? Back to his normal center-of-the-universe behavior.
