Grumpy Jack

I'm happy to report that each day Jack is feeling a little better. Saturday and Sunday were tough, but the last two days/nights have been much better. I'm cautiously optimistic that Jack will be back to his baseline very soon. Jack's morning routine always involves a lot of intervention with breathing treatments, the Vest and the Cough Assist to get his lungs cleared out. Usually, our night-time routine only involves a breathing treatment. However, with Jack being sick -- all the equipment comes out and we've got about an hour of "stuff" to do before turning off the lights. As you can tell by the pictures, Jack is not happy about having to put up with his morning routine at night-time too. (mom's not real happy either.)

The Cough Assist machine, the nebulizer machine and the Vest

But, if we can get and keep these numbers throughout the night ...... it's all worth it!

Hopefully, I'll have some pictures of happy Jack to share next time.

Carpe diem!

Those pictures say it all. Poor Jack, hope he's soon back to normal again.

What a sweetheart. I hate to see him looking sad. I will be checking back frequently for a smiling Jack picture very soon. I'm glad he is on the mend.

I love, love, love the lip. Not to see him sad, but that look is priceless.
Glad to hear that he is getting better and better.
I too love to see those numbers at night.
