He looks amazing and so happy! The artifical nose is *such* a terrible name, but it has helped all my trached patients so much. Hang in there!

Yeah, strep pneumo can be brutal. I'm glad they've identified the organism and the sensitivities. You should be able to kick it's ass now. I'm also partial to Gentle Beatings (the band name, not personally). Thinking of you all.
I have sat and talked with parents in your situation for hours as a pediatrician. I'm sorry. Just know that being in the PICU is the hardest thing you will ever have to endure. Just know that the people taking care of your son are working their hardest to help him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your Ike-a-saurus.
