Okay, so the cultures they took from Luke's breathing tube early this afternoon are growing some icky things. Heart rate continues to be elevated, and he's continuing to require extra oxygen. We've definitely got an infection brewing. Please pray that he can fight it off quickly. No word yet on if or when they will give him some antibiotics. In a little while, the docs are planning to try taking him off of his paralytic medications and to see if we can get him any more comfortable. It is very difficult to see how comfortable he is underneath being paralyzed. He will have to stay heavily sedated to make sure that ET tube stays where it is.
