Today was another good day. Gaines' nurse tried to wean his flow because he is doing so well. She was going to lower it just to see if he would tolerate it. When Brittany left the hospital this evening, he was at 100% oxygen and between 1 and 1.5 liters of flow. His SATS were good and he wasn't breathing too hard. He did gain a little bit of weight last night but not enough to worry anyone. By the way, he is 9 pounds 8 ounces...he is getting fat rolls.
I'm not sure if Brittany mentioned this but we did hire a nanny. The person that we offered the job to accepted. This is a huge weight that has been lifted. We agonized for weeks wondering how we would find someone that we felt comfortable with. Surprise, surprise...God provided for us.
Please keep praying for Gaines. He is so close to coming home.
