Diuretics & Eye Exams
Cohen had an okay day today. His blood gas this morning was bad so they did a chest xray and his lungs looked junky. The doctors are thinking that it is fluid in his lungs so he has been started on Lasix, another diuretic to help him hopefully pee out some fluid. They also had to increase the amount of pressure that is going in to keep his lungs open. I got to hold him again today and he did a little better. We are really, really hoping and praying that he doesn't get too tired and have to have his tube back. Cohen also had his eye exam today and we should get the results of that tomorrow.
