Day 16

Alex had a really good day yesterday. They tested the waters a bit by going down a bunch on the 2 drugs he's been needing to keep his blood pressure up and he did GREAT. They also lowered his vent settings bringing him one step closer to getting rid of that.

His swelling has gone down a little, he's peeing really well now. Yesterday he was actually able to open one little eye and look at us for a bit! It was the first time I'd seen his baby blues since the day he was born and it was really nice.

He's still got a lot of work to do, but the docs say he's realling turning the corner and healing. He has wash out today and hopefully next week the swelling will be down enough that they can close his chest.
