FEELING BETTER!

Witt is feeling a little better today. His osat and respiratory are doing a little better too! The doctors are not worried about this little set back. Witt's fluid balance ended up at 210ml positive. Today he will not get the extra lasix by IV. Even though Witt is not reacting too well to the breathing treatments the doctors want him to still get it twice a day. This treatment really helps to expand the lungs. Witt's stomach(or abdomen) is still bothering him but not as bad. A gastro specialist is going to be called in also to take a look at Witt. Most likely, Witt will need to be followed by gastro specialist anyway since he is on a feeding tube. The doctors said at rounds that they are very pleased with where Witt is in his recovery. They said he has been making good progress. It seems like slow progress but the fellow said there have actually been big changes. They want to sort of push Witt to the limit of change he can tolerate each day but not so much that he has set backs! For today they have ordered no changes. Witt is doing better and they want to give him a break!!

Good Morning!
