Seth and I went to the hospital last night to sit with Owen for a while. He is still listed in critical but stable condition, and is still completely sedated, but all his vital signs looked really good last night. There were no “brown blips” on the ventilator monitor, which means he was breathing on his own.
When we arrived, the night nurse was playing an Adele CD for him, and he was wiggling his feet in time with the music. Seeing that was very encouraging for me. We stayed for a couple of hours, and once my son was satisfied that Owen was comfortable and not getting worse, we came back home.
When we got up this morning and called to check, they said he did not have a fever during the night, and they were going to reduce the amount of oxygen to see how he does on his own. Thank you all for your continued prayers and thoughts. It really means a lot to our family.
