We haven’t posted in a while and we know people sometimes get a little nervous for us when it’s quiet. But don’t worry, things have been ok for little Mr Benjamin. He hasn’t quite made the progress we hoped in the past few days – he is still on the ventilator and no decision has been made on the PDA surgery yet. He also went backwards a tiny bit in his vent settings but not too far.
The doctors were also concerned about low platelets and his blood pressure going a little lower again the past few days so they ran a bunch of tests on him. It looks like he has a fungal infection but he is being treated for it and we were told not to worry too much about it. The infection could be to blame for his blood pressure and platelets so we are glad they figured it out and got him the right medicine. He will get tested again in a week to see if it went away.
In other news it looks like the little man is getting his dad’s curly hair. Amy thinks it’s just messy.
Benjamin also has had so many visitors this week: Joseph, Brianna, Annalise, Kristina, Annalisa, Grandpa W, Damon, Sarah, Elisha, Grandma W, Grandma L, Anthony, and Denise. He’s a lucky boy.
