Another quiet night for Daniel. They were able to come down on his epinephrine a small amount. He lost more fluid, so his swelling continues to improve albeit slowly. His chest X-ray showed some congestion, so they are going to break his ventilator circuit more often to suction out his chest. There are likely old clots and secretions that need to be cleared out. They have decided to wait another day on switching the ventilator. Chest closure may take place by week's end.
We forgot to wish everyone Happy Pentecost on Sunday! We welcome the Pentecost season, which is all about the Holy Spirit and New Life!
