Nurse Kelsie's art work

Iain's bow tie! Iain definitely does not like being turned and gets agitated but all in all his oxygen looks better when he is prone;we try to tell him it is better for his lungs although I am not sure he is convinced but then they give him more sedation and it does not matter anymore.  A bit of good news is that the output from his chest has decreased to a point where they were able to remove two of his five tubes, which, should also make it easier for him to be on his front.

    ...sounds like a good thing. He looks a bit like a fusebox in this picture! I do like the tie — I'm sure David will approve. Hang in there, Hess family!
