Tyson had another good day and he was in a great, silly mood for most of the day. He is resting well at nights and has a long nap in the afternoons too.
Today his INR level was a little low so we have adjusted his coumadin dose again and hope to get it right soon. He remains on half a litre - quarter of a litre of oxygen to help him maintain sats in the 80s. Once he can go through the night with no oxygen, I'm sure we will be on our way home. (The earliest we can say would be Saturday as he is still on O2 right now.)
For now the IV line remains in as long as it stays in, (I was hoping it would "pop" out when he had his bath this morning but no such luck!) and he continues to get antibiotics through the IV as well as orally. He is tolerating his heart medication well (the diuretic to help keep fluids away from his heart) and he says it tastes like Mentos :)
He was in a very good mood all of today and we can see his personality coming back slowly. As much as he is irritable and ornery when he's sick, we soon forget how difficult and challenging he can be once he starts to get back to his usual goofy self.
Please continue to keep him in your prayers, and pray that the wet cough goes away soon. It'd be nice to know that this is a result of lingering pneumonia and not the start of a very difficult road for him.
