Silence is Golden: July 11, 2012

July 12, 2012

I’m afraid to put this on the Internet because I don’t want to jinx it. But you guys are there with me when I’m crying so you get to be there with me when I’m smiling. Oliver is on the conventional ventilator! Oh my gosh. HUGE step! I am so proud of my little man. I left this afternoon to spend time with Poppy and bring her home (she is sunshine and lightness), and I felt like I came back to a different baby. It’s just so quiet. He’s not shaking. I’m afraid to breathe on him because I don’t want to mess with whatever happened that made this happen. I’m just so happy! They switched him over around 2, it’s been 7 hours and he is still doing well. His oxygen is down to 37, his nitric oxide is down to 5, and his saturations are at 100 & 100. I can’t believe it. I took a photo to prove it to myself. This morning they changed his tube again and it seems to have solved the carbon dioxide problem. Your prayers worked, everybody! God is listening. I couldn’t be more grateful. So this is a short update. Today was boring. And there is nothing better than boring.
