Wonderful News to Share!

I am so surprised that I am posting again so soon with new updates.  But I have to share this wonderful news!

Jude's PICU doctor came in and decided that he looked so good that he can go ahead an come off the Vapotherm!  But WAIT... she didn't put him back on a lower flowing oxygen.  Jude is on room air!!!  And his oxygen saturation is staying from 95-100%!!  They left the cannula in taped in place so they can put him on a little oxygen, 0.5 lpm, when he naps and sleeps.  

They also removed Jude from the continuous feeding pump, and he gets to go back to his bolus feeds.  And later this afternoon, I get to try to feed him- if he'll let me (prayers that he hasn't lost the progress we've made with his eating so far).  

After a few hours on room air, the doctor said we should get to go to a room this evening if Jude does well.  Then we should maybe get to go home Monday or Tuesday.  Maybe Monday evening with all this progress!  We shall see!

Oh and I got some cute, but fuzzy pictures of Jude playing this morning..

Now.. I that we are so closed to being discharged, I need to get home and disinfect the house!  So excited to do that though!  

Thank you so much for your prayers!  I hope everyone has a wonderful day on today, the Lord's day!  Love you!
