Nephew seems to be turning around slowly. His temp is holding overnight now, and they are starting to wean him off the high frequency ventilator onto the regular ventilator.

Chest x-rays show the lungs are clearing.

His color is great.

They are saying swine flu now even though he has not had a positive test for it. I don't know if that means the test is not really accurate, or people are just guessing. Who knows. Either way, he has been one very sick little boy.

I'm very glad to hear it. As for the swine flu diagnosis, they are probably waiting for the more accurate test which is probably being sent to a state lab and that can take a week or two.

Let me add my best wishes for the little guy's recovery.


This swine flu scare is crazy scary, esp for expectant moms, babies and elderly. I almost dread my 14 yr old going back to school. Gonna stock up on hand sanitizer and kleenex.
