Gaines took his entire bottle four times in a row today! The plan was to feed him by bottle twice in a row and then feed him by tube (this was so he could "rest" during his tube feeding). However, he took his entire bottle at 8:00 this morning and then he took his entire bottle at 11:00. His 2:00 feeding was supposed to be by tube but his nurse decided to try a bottle feed because he was wide awake. He took the entire bottle at 2:00 and then took his entire bottle at 5:00 pm as well. I'm pretty sure that it was just last Tuesday that Brittany asked everyone on the blog to pray for Gaines to improve his bottle feeds in hopes to avoid him coming home with a feeding tube. Isn't amazing how quickly God answers prayers?
Everything else is pretty much the same. Gaines is requiring between 50% and 60% oxygen on 2.5 liters of flow. The doctor did increase his feedings from 63 CC's to 65 CC's. Other than that, not much else to report. Please pray that Gaines continues to take his bottles and that his little lungs continue to improve.
