Zane spiked a bit of a fever last night- it hit 103.4 at one point, but has been back down under 100 this morning. His blood pressure and heart rate are stable.. in fact, his heart rate even went down a little- which is good. He was a little more alert this morning, so they think he's getting too tolerant of the drugs. They were going to switch his medication so that he would stay more sedated.
We went in to see him a little while ago and he had to cough again. When he coughed, his eyes opened, but he's not really aware of anything. I told him to just relax and close his eyes again and he did. We got to see his leg where all the grafting was done and while it's a little bloody, it looks much better than I thought it would. He's such a fighter.
They're planning on removing the chest tube today because there hasn't been much more fluid draining from his lungs- another good sign! We are continually thankful and counting our blessings.. I believe I've lost count. :) I tell God every day how thankful I am for these days with Zane. Last Tuesday, I didn't think I'd have many more and here we are a week out already and God has continued to keep him alive. I can't believe it's been a week. Time is moving so fast- which is a blessing in itself. It won't be too long before I'll be bringing him home with me.
