Johnny WBC continues to trend downward. His last lab was in the 70s. The doctors thing the lab from yesterday morning was wrong, and that his WBC was still in the 100s, and not in the 60s. Johnny finally woke up last night around 11p. We watched a couple of surf movies, and then he watched TV for a while. That was the longest he has stayed awake in two days. He was given Albumin (sp?) which helps pull some of the fluid out of tissue, and lasics last night, so he was able to get rid of some of his extra fluid. He is still very puffy, but he is starting to look a little better. The swelling on his temples and scalp has gone down some. His heart rate is down some, and he seems to be breathing better without the help of oxygen. He is also talking in his sleep a little less. I know I'm probably looking for improvements everywhere, but he does seem a little better this morning. At this point thing change by the hour, both for the better and the worse, so I will update later.
