I stayed at the hospital in Ben's room. He is not having a easy night. He is having fluid secretions build up in the lungs after being taken off the ventilator last night. It is very thick and they need to suck it out every hour. That is why I am up at 2:30 in the morning. He is not liking it at all and screams out. Although when they ask him to cough he does, so I know he is the same little boy that try's to please. He is now on the high flow oxygen to help while he gets through this phase. It is just part of the process because this can happen when you were on the lung bypass machine. Keep him in your thoughts.
