It is still considerably high, I believe CJ's is usually in the 120's or so.

No, resting its dipping into the 80's.  his baseline while resting is between 90-103 for last few days.  Just wanted to get some suggestions before driving his dr crazy like usual.

Blake's doing ok, he's been fighting this trach infection for a month.  We have been in and out of hospital a lot.  Just came home late wed night from his last 3 day stay.

I'll have to take CJ's pulse during his next nap. I don't want to freak you out if I am wrong on this.

Okay, I just checked his online medical record and it has between 112 and 124 for his heart rate. Could there be meds causing it to be slower? Has he been alert? It is probably nothing or normal for him, but mother's intuition can be pretty powerful.

he's on xopenex thru the nebulizer, and cipro for infection and axid for refulx.  Which he's been on all of them for over a month, but the cipro.  Before that he was on cefton and augmentin.  His nurses insists its ok, because he's in a deep sleep, but I just dont know.  He's been super alert.  Awake four five hours at a time.

If it is when he is sleeping, that is probably fine. When I think at rest i think of a baby sitting calmly on a lap, not sleeping ; ) If the nurse isn't concerned, I wouldn't be.

Thanks, the at rest term was just what the hospital was using the last time we were there.  Sleeping makes it more clear, sorry.  But thanks for the advice.  Its back up all day/night although he's pretty restless so its not perfect to compare.  Thanks
