5-3 evening update

Tristan tolerated his morning procedures very well. The needle aspiration of his pneumothorax was successful and no chest tube was needed. The IV went in on the first try and the TPN has been started. In a few minutes they will be taking a chest x-ray to see the progress of the pneumo.
He is doing very well under his hood on 100% oxygen. He had a good long sleep this afternoon which he really needed after a night of fussing and screaming. I think his night nurse will find him MUCH easier to take care of tonight over last night.

Hi, I just wanted to let you know you are all in my prayers. Tristan was on my short list of names for Galen! I LOVE that name!

Best wishes, Susan Smylie
