Gaines' heart echo is sometime this afternoon. We should find out if his PDA valve has closed and if the 4 VSD's (small holes in his heart) have remained insignificant. By the way, Gaines had no "episodes" last night. His CO2 levels are maintaining at 57 and his oxygen has been weaned to only 23% on the cpap rate (room air is 21% oxygen). Remember, the cpap rate does slightly help Gaines breathe. The doctors told us yesterday that they plan to switch Gaines back to a regular cpap today.
Today is a big day for Gaines, he could take some big steps today. Please pray that we find out that Gaines' PDA valve has closed, that his VSD's are still insignificant, that he tolerates the regular cpap, and for patience, peace, and understanding for Brittany and me.
