Well, I hope this is false labor, but at 35 weeks, the little fella may be coming!
— with Laura Caisley Sutton at Northwestern - Prentice Women's Hospital.
At this point we didn't know the extent of his issues. Turns out his lungs needed some help for a few days at least and they had to make sure there was no infection.
- So the intubation and application of medicine helped a great deal and his oxygen level is at 21%, that of normal
- air. A great first step. Need to keep it there over the next 24 hours.
His blood gas and blood sugar levels are good and they reduced the air pressure pushing into his lungs again. He's
responding really, really well. Laura and I are able to go see and touch him, though we can't pick him up yet. If he continues
at this pace then they may only intubate him for 12 hours instead of 24. All the prayers and good thoughts (and medicine)
are working!! Thanks!
So that catches you up to yesterday!!
