So, Dr. Jennings has intervened once again on our baby's behalf and has decided to put him back on the conventional ventilator as opposed to the high-frequency ventilator he's been on all weekend (and has made little progress). What's hopeful about this is that, when Rafa was on the Cold Fire, he made all kinds of progress in terms of his lungs opening up and gaining volume. He's also losing fluid even though he's taking on more blood products, which is a positive sign as well.
It's just frustrating to feel like we have to be the ones chasing down information and doctors to make the best decisions for our baby. We knew he was making progress on the other ventilator, so why wasn't he placed on it sooner?
Let's just pray that this is the choice we need to move Rafa to the next level of his recovery.
