Carter had a better day today. His main problem has been that his throat is really swollen from the ventilator tube which is giving him trouble getting air into his lungs. They've been giving him inhalant steroids which really seem to be helping. He'll be on those until the other drugs kick in. We went up there early, and spent a lot of snuggle time with him. I think that the poor little guy really does feel like we've abandoned him, but unfortunately we can't stay with him all of the time with our two other children at home. The docs started to wean him off of the high flow oxygen again, and are working hard at getting him out of the ICU and into the infant unit. We'll keep praying that it happens soon.
