You are still gaining weight (1 pound 13 ounces!) but the doctors think that you might have an infection. Your respiratory issue is likely the result of bacteria in your windpipes since that respirator causes irritation and creates a nice goey, hospitable environment for undesireable microbes. Also, that cyst in your brain is still there. "Don't worry about it because there's nothing we can do about that at the moment," the doctors tell me. Is it weird that this comment does for me the exact opposite of what its meant to do? It's back to the waiting game, then. Why is the day so long?
