That's right...Drake started his morning off with another good blood gas and was weaned down to 1L on his cannula! If he continues to do well, he will be joining us over in Special Care very soon. There is even talk that his move could happen this weekend! He did a great job working with his Occupational Therapist this morning, and I even snapped a few pictures of him while he was doing his stretches.
Kennedy had a routine echocardiogram this morning, and her doctor's exact words were, "Everything looks 100% normal." This is wonderful news because they worry about possible heart problems when preemies have been on oxygen for such a long time. Drake was checked last week and had good results, too. Another positive...for the 1st time since we moved to Special Care, she was on good behavior last night and did not awaken me at 4am with a Brady.
