Super tired so this will be quick...


Another fairly uneventful day, they did pull out all of Tristan's staples from his incision which they feel is healing wonderfully. He did okay through the removal no outward signs of irritation so that is good.

They think they may have finally got a good mix with his TPNs- everything looked normal on his blood labs so step in the right direction there. They still have not gone up on his actual feeding volume. I found out they won't until he is extubated.


They did find out he has a fairly large clot in his right leg. Since it is in his vein and not his artery they are not sure where it came from or how long it has been there. They will treat it with a medication called lovenox (not sure if I spelled that right) that will consist of him getting 2 shots per day in either his thigh or stomach for 3 months….. L so I am not too happy about having to do that to him but hopefully by the time he gets to come home he will be used to them and not mind so much. It is a fairly small, short needle that the nurse said should not hurt too much….obviously she likes shots!!! J


Other than that not too much else happened today. They will probably try to extubate him again tomorrow so wish us luck there. ~Christy
