Cole is off oxygen and is in the step down unit! The night nurse and the day nurse both tried to take him off oxygen and said he desaturated down into the 60s, so they left it on. He was only on a 1/4 of a liter. Maybe he was screaming bloody murder when they did that? As soon as we got over here the nurse looked at his SATS that were in the 90s and said let's see how he does. That was around 5 it's 10 now and he is hanging out in the mid to upper 80s.

He still seems a little sore. Every time he coughs or sneezes he screams. Not as bad as he was but, enough to wake him up when he's sleeping. We have a sound machine for him to help quell the hospital noises but, it must not be as loud as the other one we have. It doesn't seem to help him much. Maybe we can call audiology and tell them he passed our hearing check? It's still much quieter in our own private room then being practically in the hallway.

We're hoping he has a good night and that will be enough to let us go home soon but, you never know around this place. Tomorrow all the shifts change so all new doctors start their week up and who knows what they'll think of Cole.
