Well, it's been a couple of really good days for Kyle. He's doing well in physical therapy and actually was sitting straight up by himself today! He has not had a fever in 5 days and while today he had an upset stomach, he seems to be tolerating the feedings - only 6 cc's an hour which is equivalent to about 1 teaspoon and 1/2. We did find out that a wisdom tooth on the right side of his jaw decided to pop through, so we are waiting to talk to the Dentist about pulling that out at some point. That may have attributed so some of that jaw pain he's been experiencing.

His breathing is good - breathing room air, keeping up his oxygen saturation levels and only has about 30% assistance with the pressure. They will continue to monitor this closely and begin to wean the assistance down in the next couple of weeks! His lungs seem to be clearing up nicely and his C-diff is probably on the way out, but he's still in "isolation" mode.

So many thanks for everyone that has been down to see him and he loves getting cards and letters. Here's the address if you'd like to drop him a note:

Kyle Preston
2270 Ivy Road
Charlottesville, VA 22903

More soon!
