Today your breathing was somewhat concerning. At times, it was rapid fire. Your little chest was pounding in and out so fast that you were almost at 3 breathes a second for a short period of time. Your mouth was agape, tongue hanging out, eyes wide open and staring.
There was some mention of the fact that your nose was irritated during a suction while we were out eating dinner (remember, oxygen is delivered through nose prongs) and when we noticed the suction disposal bin a minute ago, it had a disturbing amount of dried blood inside.
As a result, your respiratory needs were cranked up considerably. They aren't as bad as when we took you off the endotracheal tube 9 days ago, so we have something to show for the past week, but set backs happen I suppose. Damn you, weekend curse.
