I am glad Dalton is staying and demanding new antibiotics, I am going to do the same since I don't feel what I am getting is doing anything either. Maybe we can go back to our normal IV cocktail. Speaking of cocktail, I miss St. Thomas.
Anyway, what my post was originally about was our Oxygen saturations. First of all, oxygen saturation is a measure of how much oxygen the blood is carrying as a percentage of the maximum it could carry.Your oxygen saturation (o2 sats) usually range from about 98-100%. Even with CF mine and Daltons have always been 96-100%. In the last few weeks we both have dropped and hovered to around 90% and just these past couple of weeks we have dropped even more. Without oxygen, my o2 sats are around 83% and Dalton is in the same boat. This is a very over whelming feeling for me. I am now on oxygen almost all of the time. I do breathing treatments four times a day and it doesn't make it any better.
We need all the prayers we can get please. That is all I ask of you. -Katie
