Bath in the PICU September 2015

William got his first bath in over a year - "real bath" that is, in water with soap. William does get a bath every night but it's with the hospital bath cloths which isn't quite the same.

Bath Time!


Before the bath he had to get his central line dressing changed. He was pretty calm with his nurse holding him still and looking into her eyes:

Splashing his feet:

I think He likes it

Getting dried off and settled back in:

Afterwards, the water was really dirty. Soaking those feet got a lot of dead skin loose that was able to be scrubbed off.

As far as overall progress, William has been averaging 50% FIO2 and generally doing well. We are making progress toward getting him weaned off the Midaz, Morphine and Dex. If all goes well we should be off them in the next two months.
