Samuel's right lung (the one with the PIE) has continued to get worse. The doctors have him on his right side so that lung will collapse and heal. The left lung (the one that has the hole in it) is doing all of the work right now. Samuel is on 100% oxygen, the highest oxygen setting. He is also close to the top on all of the other settings as well.
They have put in yet another iv into his scalp. They are giving him blood and he looks very swollen. His poor little face is hardly recognizable. His blood pressure is low right now. They are hoping that the blood will help that as well.
It's like all of his body functions are connected - one thing is wrong and it causes something else to go wrong. It seems to make treating the individual things very difficult.
