Discouraging day

Well, today has been another discouraging day. Maximus is still struggling to breath on his own, so is still on the respirator. Michele said he just has too much crud and can't get it out. They're running some tests to see whether he may have an infection that is producing the mucus. He did have one of the drainage tubes removed, so I guess that is some progress. Keep the prayers coming and hope for better progress for tomorrow.


  1. I'm hoping that tomorrow will be a better day. I will keep you all in my prayers. (((HUGS)))

    Love ya!

  2. Max-
    Audrey and I have our fingers crossed for a better day tommorrow and a speedy recovery. We can't wait for our first playdate!

  3. When will they know if it is an infection and is that a good thing or a bad thing? Maybe Max is just slow at ridding himself of fluid retention. He is half Peacock you know! Tomorrow is the hump day of the week, let's just hope that Max will be over the hump too.
