Sorry for the delay's been a busy couple of days and we're just now able to give you an update.Monday was a pretty good day for Kyle. He had a little bit of physical therapy but most of the day, just rested. He's experiencing some major pain in his jaw from what we now know is an infected tooth that had a root canal last year and it appears the cap has come off. They are now treating him with antibiotics and the Dentist will evaluate him in 10 days and then schedule a time next week to cap that tooth again.Tuesday was not a particularly good day. Kyle woke up feeling sick and really didn't want to do anything. He's started running a fever again and his medical team is watching closely for any infection other than his tooth. The good news is that his chest xrays are looking good. His right lung is clearing up fast and he doesn't have to be suctioned as much these days! That's wonderful news and gets him closer to weaning him off that ventilator.Today he is feeling better and has already had physical therapy and occupational therapy and is getting ready for recreational therapy. Still running a low grade fever and his medical team is running some blood tests to see if they can pinpoint the cause of the fever.More soon!
