Friday update

Jaxon did ok overnight. He hasn't turned the corner yet, but he's stable. The doctor I met with today said the Radiologist diagnosed Jax's X-Ray with "possible beginning stage of pneumonia", so who knows. The antibiotic Jax is getting will thwart any bacteria in the lungs, so he's covered regardless.

Jax is still breathing fairly fast, but his sats are staying acceptable to not require oxygen. Although he did de-sat during his nap a bit, so I'll be interested to see if he can go overnight tonight without needing oxygen.

We started giving him half strength feeds at 1pm today and by 2:30 he puked it up. I think they'll try his next feed at 5, otherwise he'll be getting Pedialyte through the night.

So, we're just monitoring him with support to see how he does.
