Better still

George had a settled night.

They’ve weened him off dopamine which was maintaining his blood pressure and have taken away most of the tubes and cannulas.

It’s fantastic news that his blood pressure is back to normal, this means he’s no longer in septic shock. He’s still having just a little oxygen, but it’s minimal so his breathing has vastly improved too.

He’s sore from having the ventilator down his throat but he’ll be given paracetamol regularly to make him comfortable.

Although we still don’t know the the underlying cause of the infection, his bloods show that his infection markers are coming down, so one of the many antibiotics are obviously working.

He will be moved out of Intensive Care and onto a regular ward today.

He’s an amazingly strong boy and we are so proud of him.
