May 11th, 2007

Carver is having a rough time. He is back on the high frequency ventilator. He has pneumonia.

Since Carver isn’t well, he has gained another ½ lb in water weight, so he is swollen again.

They have stopped both Carver's and Kinnick's feedings for a while. Both have had problems with their intestines. So far, they're not aware of any ruptures. Kinnick might get to try eating again on the 13th, but not sure when Carver will get to try eating again.

Kinnick’s oxygen needs went up quite a bit about a week ago, but are now back down to near room air. They believe she was sick, but she is doing better again. They've been talking again about putting her on CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.) Hopefully that will happen this time.
