3/4 Liter

Gaines blood work came back yesterday and looked good so his doctor had us turn his oxygen down to 3/4 a liter. I was so nervous because I knew I'd be devastated if he couldn't handle it but he did awesome! His sats were 97-99 last night while he was asleep. Please pray that this "takes" and that he doesn't get tired and have to go back up. Also, if he's still doing well next Monday we'll cut his Lasix back to .25 ml. If that goes well I'm supposed to call them back in two weeks and we might make another cut before we go back for clinic at the end of March. I am cautiously optimistic about all this. Afraid to get my hopes up too high but so excited that this first step seems to be going well. Please keep Gaines in your prayers. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a cordless baby by summer?

Love to all,

YAY!!! A cordless baby??? You won't believe how easy it is to maneuver around the house. :) Or get out of the house with him!
