CPAP and vacuum dressing!

Jadon has had a pretty mixed week.   His blood pressures have been soft so they can't increase sedation.  As a result he has been very agitated.  Last night he desatted (low oxygen levels in blood) several times so they put him on CPAP.  He would wake up fretting every 10 minutes or so throughout the night.  Needless to say this leads to very tired parents.  Sara and I traded off quieting duties overnight so we could each get a little time of rest.

His chest incision has dehisced (opened up) once again (as it did with his first surgery) and it's infected. .. with candida (a fungus).  He's on flucozanole and he's doing a bit better today.  They just recently put him on vacuum dressing to help clear out the wound.  Hopefully it works so they don't have to go back to the OR to clean it up.
