Just wanted to share the good news that Stephen was taken off of the ventilator this morning! He is back on CPAP, but he's doing really great without the ventilator and both lungs are inflating really well. His left lung the other day was having trouble inflating, but that appears to have corrected itself. And his nurse Connie was able to fix that also by changing the position he was laying in to help facilitate the lung to inflate fully. He'll have another x-ray this afternoon to check his lungs again and they are changing the dressing on this PIC as we speak, and then I should be able to hold him this afternoon.
This morning he's been resting and sucking away on his pacifier while we listen to The Beatles and a little country music. This afternoon I hope to finally share with everyone some pictures and details from Stephen's baptism on Sunday. I totally forgot I hadn't shared that yet. My apologies!
