we are inpatient right now. The orl dr looked down the trach and saw inflamation, and we are going to go up from a 3.0 to a 3.5, first thing tomorrow am,

but Jasper is crying so much, we try to position him in differnet ways but it still bothers him, and we tried his fav thing, the swing but he cries as soon as you put him in it and I think it is because as he is sitting up the trach is hitting the area that is inflamed.

also he is having more secretions than normal too, fluid not thick though

Anyway, just seeing if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions,
thanks

Did they culture it to see if he has any kind of infection? My only suggestion is to use a dressing underneath. Addisyn had a staph infection that was bugging her for a while.
