8 Pounds

We took Reed to the Biscuits Game last night and he had a blast. I'm not sure if he actually watched any of the game, but he loved being there. We did take the camera to the game but the battery was dead. Sorry, no pictures.

Gaines had his 3-month immunizations today. His nurse told us that she put it off all day long. The last thing she wanted to do was to give him a couple of shots. Gaines did fine and is doing well. He is still on 4 liters at 40% oxygen. It has been such a blessing that he has been able to maintain this for several days. On Monday, the plan is still to reduce his flow to only 3 liters. Please pray that he will be able to tolerate this amount.

Gaines has hit the 8 pound mark. Last night he weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce. The doctor thinks he might be retaining some fluid. They are going to monitor his weight gain over the next several days and will give him a different diuretic if he gains too much weight too fast.

Please pray for healthy weight gain and that Gaines will tolerate the reduced flow of 3 liters.
