OFF STEP DOWN STATUS

Witt has had a great day! He is off step down status although he remains in the same room for now. What this means is a lot less wires because they are only monitoring oxygen saturation and heart rate. It's as if he is just on his pulse/ox monitor at home. He did just fine on his increased feeds. He is pretty junky sounding in his nose and throat(not the lungs!) but he is coughing pretty good too. Coughing and suctioning is happening a lot in this room. The PT, Stephanie, came by yesterday for a session. Every 4 hours or so respiratory comes for his breathing treatment. Part of this is CPT or Chest Physical Therapy which Witt actually enjoys especially on the back.

Once again I find myself needing to thank each of you for your support and prayers and once again the words just don't seem like enough! Please know that I am more than grateful and humbled by the prayers for Witt and all his family. I can tell you with no uncertainty that your prayers make all the difference in this world...thank you!
