Tonight Nathan's status has not changed much. They have turned his ventilator down a little since his carbon dioxide levels have dropped (this is a good thing). The next goal is for his lungs to get strong enough to switch to a different ventilator that allows for him to do more of his breathing on his own.
The nurses continue to suction his lungs. Nathan doesn't like this very much; sometimes he fidgets and grimaces since it makes him uncomfortable. The good thing is that he is improving and not getting worse. He has had two days and nights of not getting worse now. :) More tomorrow.
