April 22, 2008

I spent some time at the hospital this afternoon, Leland was there this morning.. I called up a bit ago because they were doing a chest xray (Yes, Seth DOES glow in the dark! ) when I left and I wanted to know the results.. Seth NOW has a chest tube on the left side, as well as the one on the right they put in yesterday..

He's still on the vent and they're keeping him comfortable on sedatives..

The GOOD news for today is the doctors now seem to think his left diaphragm is NOT paralyzed, just very weak. With the ventilator breathing "for" him, and inflating his lungs, THAT will move the diaphragm and begin to strengthen it..

He IS getting better, just at HIS own pace!

Thank you for your continued prayers!
