So Coen's now the proud (temporary) owner of a chest tube. Luckily the needle aspiration worked on the other side, so he doesn't have a tube in each side. Since that was inserted, he's really improved and they were able to take him off C-PAP and switch him to a high flow nasal canula. He's straddling the line at this point...the C-PAP was too damaging to his lungs but his blood gases haven't been great with the canula, so we'll see what happens. Until he gets this chest tube out no cuddling is allowed, and I'm dying to hold him.
The good news is that he's getting very small amounts of breast milk every three hours and his very rapid breathing (over a hundred breaths a minute at one point) has slowed down markedly.
The plus to getting off the C-PAP is that they took off a hat that was helping keep it in place and I finally got to see his hair! I have no clue who he looks like at this point. His face is still quite swollen and he's been in some pain from the chest tube so I don't think he really looks like himself yet. But I was able to take some great pictures in the dark last night (Thank goodness for fast 50mm lesnses!), so here are some of the boy.
