Early Evening Update

Eli had his CT scan.  They ended up having to go an LMA instead of a full intubation.  He did decent.  Immediately following they did his ECHO.  We got back to his room and he was still having alot of trouble with breathing and secretions and such.  
well the good news is he doesn't have a blood clot in his lungs. The bad news is his entire right lung has a very bad pneumonia. They are changing around his antibiotics and putting him on 2 high dose ones. They are also upping his pain meds as he's still in alot of pain, to the point we still can't hold him or touch him. He's going on 48 hrs with only 1 wet diaper. The goal for tonight is to get all the new meds going and try to get his pain a bit more under control. We are still waiting on the results of his echo.
As always we will update as soon as we know more!
