Gaines had two doctors look at him today. I know, normally we are complaining about the doctors switching all the time and today he actually had two doctors review his progress. The NICU had very young twins admitted today. Since the twins were so young and so small, they had an extra doctor. Anyway, both doctors were pleased with Gaines' progress. They decided to keep him on lasix as needed rather than a scheduled dose every day. They also increased the calories in his bottles.
The most exciting news of the day was the doctors increased his oxygen to 100%. He is on 2 liters, 100% oxygen. They did this because he will be on 100% when he comes home. Basically, they are starting the process of getting him ready to go home. Please understand this process of getting him ready to go home will take weeks not days. However, it is exciting to hear a doctor mention Gaines going home. Maybe the end is near.
Please pray for Gaines and please pray for this specific prayer request. Brittany and I think we have found someone to be Gaines' nanny. I left her a message today offering her the job. We haven't heard back yet but are praying that this works out.
