The long Thursday

First, a James update:  James had a better day today. He didn't run a fever at all today (YAY!) and he had a little time without oxygen, but he didn't sustain and ended up being put back on O2. He had a nice BLOWOUT of his diaper, and while he was upset and such his sats were decent without the oxygen. Now he's dropping down as he's settling down for the night and he's likely going to need to be put back on oxygen. There's hope that he's improving, though! He has been back in good spirits today, though, which is great.
