During our visits with Gaines today he was given a bigger bed. The nurses told us that he is getting older, longer, and needed a change of scenery. It is kind of funny to see him in his new bed because it is a pediatric bed. The bed looks enormous! The nurses also told us that because he is getting older (almost 3 months old) he is getting bored. The new, bigger bed allows us to attach a mobile and to bring him a few toys. We are also going to bring his car seat so he will have a different place to rest other than his bed. The nurses are already giving him some time in an infant swing. I will try and take some pictures of his new "home" tomorrow after we get it set up. I'm sure all the other babies in the NICU will be jealous.
I think Brittany mentioned in the previous post that they reduced Gaines' cannula to only 1.5 liters of flow. This morning they had to increase it back to 2 liters. His oxygen requirement on 2 liters is 55% right now.
Brittany and Gaines' nurse had a good long talk today about his oxygen. I think it is finally sinking in that it is no longer possible that Gaines will be sent home on oxygen...it is probable. According to the nurse, 95% probable. I guess that will just be another step in this journey. We have to keep reminding ourselves...one step at a time.
