Also, his VapoTherm settings have come way down. He got weaned today and is on a flow of 3 and oxygen support of 24%…and he’s been doing great with it!
So, throughout the next few weeks, Beckett will be closely monitored from a Cardiac standpoint (like always), working on his Methadone wean, get him down and eventually off of VapoTherm (his oxygen support), exchange his IV meds to Oral (like, Lasix), and possibly do an MRV to see the status of his blood clots (specifically the one his in brain from when he went into Cardiac Arrest hours after his initial surgery back in January). That’s it. Easy, right? No, but seriously, Beckett has made some huge strides these past few weeks, and we are very VERY thankful!
Lastly, we had a lot of great visitors today. My morning began with a phone call from my Uncle that he and my Grandma were on there way from Ohio and should be here by noon. So, that was exciting. My Grandma and Uncle have yet to see Beckett, so it was really great for that to finally happen. And as they were leaving, some of Beckett’s primary nurses from St. V’s visited again. It’s always so good to see them too as they truly care so much for my son and it really means a lot to both Leah and I. Then lastly, Leah’s mother surprised us again and just showed up towards the end of the day. It’s always nice to have her here (along with any of our parents), but Leah does appreciate turning around and being pleasantly surprised to see her Mom here.
Anyways, we truly have such an amazing support system. Our family, our extended family, our friends, those of you we’ve never met, and especially you who is reading this post right now. Thank you. Thank you. There are days that we just get so worn out from this, but your constant support and encouragement is amazing! We try to read each comment, observe all the Facebook “likes”, and we are flattered and amazed! So again, thank you!
And as always, thank you Jesus…our Savior, my son’s healer, for bringing us this far, and carrying us through. You will forever be who this family will praise; may the Rupp family glorify and honor your name now and for many generations to come.
