Well, Reed likes to do his own thing! I came into his room around 12:30 this afternoon and there were two cardiologists by his bed. My first thought was "oh no, his heart is being rejected." Thankfully his heart is still doing great and very healthy!!!
To make a long story shorter, he is being moved back down to the 5th floor for closer monitoring because he is breathing too hard. They call this being tachypnic. His echo on his heart showed no change, praise God! They did a chest and belly x-ray which showed that he had extra fluid around his left lung. They are about to put in a thin tube through his side to drain off this extra fluid. They are pretty sure this is what is causing his tachypnea. Dr. Dodd said this extra fluid is sometimes caused from pushing the feedings too quickly or too much.
Please pray that this procedure goes well and fixes the problem!
