Brittany went to visit Gaines early this morning. She arrived at the hospital before 8:00 AM. She spent more than and hour and a half with him. He is still at 50% oxygen and on 3 liters of flow. He seems to be breathing a little easier as each day passes. He now weighs 8 pounds 9 ounces.
After Brittany got home from visiting Gaines, we took Reed to a birthday party. He played non-stop. The birthday party was at a park. Reed was either sliding down the slide or swinging the entire time. He only stopped for birthday cake and ice cream. After the birthday party we ran errands (Reed slept in his car seat). After a quick lunch we spent two hours at the pool with Reed and then I went back to the hospital and spent two hours with Gaines. What a day.
Please remember to pray for Gaines. There is a possibility on Monday that the doctor will try and wean Gaines' flow to only 2 liters. Brittany and I are not quite sure that Gaines is ready for this. We are going to have a long talk with his doctors before any decision is made. Don't get me wrong, Gaines is doing very well. We just don't want to push him too hard too quick. Please pray for Gaines and everyone involved that the right decision is made.
