Wide Awake Witt!
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
Witt is still holding his own on the CPAP. The only knock out medicine he is on is methadone and that is being given in smaller and smaller doses every 12 hours. Now when Witt is awake he is playing with hanging toys, smiling and trying to "talk" at Melanie. All this even though he is flat on his back with the CPAP contraption taped on his face. Melanie still hasn't been able to hold Witt but at least now he is interacting with her! Witt remains on the CPAP because it really "pushes" the oxygen with a stronger blow than what the simple nasal cannula does. This helps the lungs to inflate and Witt to take really deep breaths. Melanie is going to ask the doctors if at some point before the surgery Witt can go on the nasal cannula and she could hold him. For right now the surgery is scheduled for tomorrow but as we know that could change!!! God's perfect timing in all things!
