….but not much of one.
Jude is stable but heavily sedated, we haven’t seen him awake much for a couple of days. His blood gases (whatever they are) are improving which is a good sign but he’s still one very sad little boy at the moment.
He is still maintained only on oxygen and at times they have been able to reduce this but when he starts coughing he goes downhill for a while. The hope is that if he can stay as he is tonight and tomorrow they might look to move him to the High Dependency Unit where we can have a little bit more ‘hands on’. It’s pretty desperate not being able to pick him up and a lot of the time we feel like spare parts.
