September 1, 2011
Things here are not going well. After the weekend, the CO2 in Alexander's blood went way up. The doctors were unable to get it back down on the conventional vent... so they placed him back on the oscillator and started another round of steroids. Unfortunatly, Alexander has not responded the way we all hoped. He is currently on very high vent settings and 100% oxygen. The doctor says there is a small chance it could be an infection and has started antibiotics in case... but he believes that his lungs may be starting to fail. Time is the only thing that will tell. Alexander needs all the help he can get to pull through right now.
