Alex's Respiratory Progress

When I called the hospital shortly after 4:00 this morning Alex was being switched to Vapo-Therm. I visited at 5:00 and he was on 6 liters and 25% oxygen (21% is room air), and he was satting in the 90's (the oxygen saturation level in his blood was between 90 & 100%). He was wide awake for me as I sang and talked to him. I am thrilled with the progress he's making. His nurse mentioned that if he continues to do well he can start bottle feeding. I'm hoping to do kangaroo care with him tonight, at last.

I thank God for the miracles that have been given to me.
