Mason continued to be on the road to recovery, I didn't know how it was possible really. My baby had just overcome not only a Chylothorax but a Pneumothorax which both together alone should have killed him. One of the nurses had told be a few days back that they had never had a baby survive a Chylo, that was when I pretty much lost hope. Although Mason would constantly get critically ill for some odd reason I was never too alarmed, I guess because he had overcome so much that I thought he was capable of anything. But this last time, when I saw all the drainage I just didn't think he'd survive. But here we were, once again on our way back to actually taking steps forward. They continued to lower Mason's respiratory settings which was always a good sign. He was still on a high frequency ventilator but was on much lower settings, low enough that they could possibly change him over to a conventional ventilator any day now.
It's in his heart
