More Good News

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.

Wow I am praying he can hold at that 1.5 and that ke continues to improve. Also I have a question... Once Gaines is home and things go back to a semi normal place will you guys quit blogging or will you continue?

WOW? 1.5 already? God works fast doesn't He? That's so awesome! GOOD FOR GAINES!!!

And congrats on finding a good nanny - that's gotta be a monkey off your back!

Maybe Brittany will get her original Labor Day "goal/wish" after all. I am probably rushing things but....maybe?
