First of all, a big sigh of relief. The test results for the rare genetic disorder came back from John Hopkins and they were negative. I don't think the doctors, Brittany or I really believed Gaines had the genetic disorder but it is still nice to cross that one off the list.
Throughout last night Gaines' oxygen requirements were between 25% and 26%. Due to his recent progress, the doctors decided to try him on nasal cannula (2 liters) this morning. He has been on it for about an hour and is doing well. What an unbelievable blessing this might be. You may remember that the doctors tried him on nasal cannula last week and he only lasted about 5 minutes.
On a different note, we experienced a "God Thing" yesterday. One week ago Brittany and I were discussing our finances and determined our "budget" for the remaining time that she and Reed would be here. Yesterday, we recieved a monetary gift from an organization that I am affiliated with. The monetary gift was the exact amount of our "budget". What an incredible blessing.
Brittany will post later tonight with an update on Gaines and the nasal canula experiment.
Please continue to pray for us.
