Progress






Hi all. Sorry about the delay in postings. Things have been pretty uneventful, which is very good. Scott continues to eat well (not exactly eating, but at least digesting all the milk that is fed to him through a tube). His breathing had gotten faster so they put him back in the CPAP device (to help expand his lungs - see picture) and it seems to have helped. So much so that they took him off of it after two days. Now he is back on the nasal canula and is basically breathing on his own.
He has moved into crib so it feels like he closer to being normal. He is getting bigger every day and is even wearing real onsies, although they are way too big for him.

The doctors are evaluating whether at some point they can change his antibiotic to one that can be taken orally, which could allow us to go home sooner. It's not certain, but a nice thing to hope for.

Thanks again for all your support and prayers. We really appreciate it all.

Phil, Mindy, Will & Scott

What a great picture!! You are certainly in our prayers. FYI - my Mom, Jan, fell and broke her leg. We are all hoping and praying she doesn't need surgery. Life is literally ups and downs!
Love to you all - Dee Dee
