"for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him."

Trey did not have as good a day as before. His carbon dioxide level has risen to 72. The doctors are concerned with his lung development. He is not tolerating being weaned from the vent - when they turn him down a little, his numbers go up. They feel that the excess fluid in him is contributing to this, so they are going to give him an antibiotic to get rid of all the excess fluid. Once that is done, the doctors believe that his numbers will be better. They have also found two forms of bacteria in the vent tubing. One is being treated with an antibiotic already (from the pneumonia), but the other one is not covered under that same antibiotic. So they are going to start another antibiotic to cover that one.
