All is still well with Gaines today. We've made two visits so far and getting ready to go back after shift change at 7:30. He still seems to be holding his own. His oxygen is staying in the twenties...24 at some points. Today I asked the nurse what happens when he gets to 21%. She told me they'd just start weaning him off the CPAP. I believe they start off taking him off for an hour and then back on for a few and so forth.
I also found out that in a couple of days he should be able to wear little shirts. Kind of caught me off guard. I didn't even ask and the nurse just offered that up. Just a little something to look forward too. Over the weekend I learned that once he gets to 1800 grams (4 lbs I think), he gets to move to an open top bed. Right now he's in an islolet. I think he's a little over 1500 now.
We've had a great day today with Reed. He is so much fun. Right now he and Beau are practicing what all the animals say. I am so glad we decided to keep him here.
Please continue to keep our family in your prayers. We've made a lot of progress the last few days but we still have a ways to go. Gaines is improving but still not breathing on his own and we are still living 900 miles away from home. We are so thankful to everyone out there that continues to keep up with us.
Love to all,
