Medically, Hudson had the typical day 2 post surgery. Not a very good day. Because of all the fluid they'd given him somewhat saturated his lungs and he sounded wet and wasn't as expanded as they'd like. So they made some changes and by last night he was doing much better. For instance at noon his oxygen requirement was 45% and then with care it had to be bumped up to 70%. When we left him last night it was 25%. Each time they move his head he coughs up some stuff...that goes in his little specimen jar that sucks out of his stomach. It has a medical name but at this given moment I don't remember it. The surgeon came to look at him today and when he took the bandage off he had some puss next to the drain. And earlier in the day the doctor had discontinued his antibiotic...so because of that he got 2 blood cultures and was put on 2 other antibiotics. We should know in 24 to 48 hours if there is an infection in him. I pray that there is not! He didn't have any bowel sounds on day 2 but did on day 1. So hopefully today he'll have bowel sounds again! Hudson gets very agitated very easily. Mainly any time I touch him he requires more oxygen, it happened to Ben a few times. He had one Brady yesterday but nothing significant and he came back on his own. So here is to a better day!
