Witt's carbon dioxide numbers remain about the same but last night Dr. Macicek said those numbers are good enough to keep him off the ventilator. Witt is on a pretty strong "blow" from the CPAP to help inflate the right lung. That would need to be slowly turned down before the CPAP would come off and Witt's normal nasal cannula with oxygen would be used. That process could take a couple of days. For now Mel still can't hold Witt because of the CPAP contraption but there is a huge difference in Witt being on this as compared to the breathing tube. Mel calls him her little pig...the cannula and tubes for the CPAP push his little nose way up!
Dr. Macicek said that Witt's surgery most likely would be Tuesday or Wednesday and not Monday. This has nothing to do with Witt but scheduling...praying for God's schedule and not ours!!!
Connor update: Connor, the 17 year old that I had asked for prayer for is doing so much better. He is now off the ventilator that he had been on for somewhere around 28 days! Hopefully, today he can eat. He has lost a lot of weight. His parents remain strong and faithful...ministering to whoever they can in the waiting room!
