HOPEFULLY OFF THE CPAP SOON!

Witt gets to be off the CPAP 3 times in 24 hours for an hour each time. He actually did very well. Now that Witt is feeling better and alert, he is starting to really fight with the CPAP and cry. Earlier today Witt had an echo to check for fluid around the heart. It showed that there was very little collecting. Witt's oxygen saturation is staying really high which is good. Basically it doesn't come down from 100 so they continue to wean him off the CPAP to just the nasal cannula. He is one happy camper with the cannula and Melanie holding him...so is Mel!

All of these baby steps sound like good news to me. Or is it God news? We are heading out of town til Tuesday. Prayers will continue. Not sure if we'll get near a computer. If so, we'll check in. Happy 4th to Witt's Family! ~Mindy
