Davis did need to be put on a CPAP machine (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) because there was a dramatic drop in his blood oxygen levels about five minutes after the tube came out. The doctors are not sure why this happened but are hoping that as more of the pain medicine and sedatives wear off that he will come off that machine as well. He is starting to squirm around more and grab for tubes and wires; all very good signs. He hasn't opened his eyes yet but we are not sure that he can as they are still quite puffy. It looks like he was on the losing end of a boxing match. Other than the breathing issue he is doing fantastic. The medicine pumps are coming down one after another. He is only on a few medications now and they are giving him Tylenol for the pain. Hopefully tomorrow we can start getting something into his belly and get him feeling a little better.
