It's been a good day. Levi's platelets have doubled from 22 to 57. They have started to pull back his oxygen, and as of this post he was at 75 percent (down from 100) with no drop in saturation. His blood gas levels are really good and even improved after they dropped his oxygen. All the fluid has come off his lungs, and his swelling has almost disappeared (he looks like Bee-Bi again!) And—the crowning achievement—he pooped for the first time.
We know there are going to be lots of ups and downs from here, but we needed a day like this. Thanks to all for your messages and prayers.
