Jared had a good night. His fever is lower from 99 to 101 so that is good. It has been up at 103 for the past two days. The only thing keeping that darn tube in his chest is his lungs. His chest x-ray looked the same as yesterday, which is not very good. A lot of his lungs have got junk in them. They are continuing to suction this. And I think they are confident that it will just take time for him to recover from that. Hopefully the tube can come out on Monday or Tuesday. That will be a huge milestone.
He asked to watch/listen to a movie lasts night, so they let him see Star Wars. He doesn't want his glasses and he can't really turn his head, but I think just listening to something is a good distraction. Also I think he just kind of comes in and out of consciousness, so it is good to watch movies that he already knows. The other choice the hospital has was Buzz Light year. No really Jared's thing. I naively brought a bunch of movies last Monday, thinking he could watch them. They have been here all week, so now we can take advantage of them. I've got all three Lord of the Rings, 3 Pirates Movies, Spider man, and Harry Potter. Actually a minute ago he said he wanted to see the first Pirate movie so I put that on for him. But he seems to be back asleep to me.
When I first got here the nurse was getting ready to give him a bath. He told me to "Get Out" so that is a good sign also. Anytime your 14 year old tells you to leave them alone, it is a sign things are normal, right?
