Austin will be on the ventilator, on very low settings, for about up to another week. He needs to really start putting on the weight... that will help improve everything. They are giving him 20 breathes per minute, and he's on average taking about 30+ breaths per minute on his own, and his oxygen is on about 36%-40%. This is what needs to go down... the oxygen their giving him. Once he "fattens up" a bit, his lung tissue will develop more and allow him to "hold on to" the oxygen better.
|He's already much bigger from the "first time" I held him.|
I did kangaroo care today for an hour and fifteen minutes. I love him so much! Its so awesome to hold him. I am going to do it everyday!!!! I'm glad he's back to himself enough that we are able to hold him again!
GOD IS GOOD!
