Wednesday Morning Surprise

I woke up this morning and called the NICU to find out how Gaines did overnight. Our favorite Nurse answered (she is taking care of him today). She proceeded to tell me that they ran some labs this morning and had gotten results back on two and those two looked good. She also told me that Gaines' CO2 came down last night from 62 to 59. All his other blood gases look good. Then came the surprise...his oxygen setting was on 42% when we left last night. He has been maintaining about 42% oxygen for the last several days. This morning his oxygen is 28%! Praise God for steps in the right direction. We'll post more as we know more. Hopefully more of the lab results will be back when we get to the hospital.
