For the past two hours, Roscoe's oxygenation has steadily trended downward. Two hours ago it was in the 91-93 range, about a half hour ago it was in the 88-90 range, and now it is 81-84. We are concerned that this may be the final chapter of Roscoe's story.
The doctors are considering taking him off of the paralyzers so that he can move around a little. I am not sure if this is to stimulate better blood flow, or if it is just so that Alisha and I can gaze into his eyes one last time.
Alisha and I are heartbroken, confused, frustrated, and filled with sorrow. We feel like we have been beaten and God has left us. We know that isnt the case, but its yet another instance where our emotions and intellect are in disagreement. We plan to spend this last day with Roscoe, enjoying the little time we have left. We hope this isn't the end, but in case it is we want to make the most of it.
