We are rejoicing in another good night. However, Beckett’s ‘flow’ on his VapoTherm (the step down from his Ventilator) did get turned back up a little because he has been working harder to breathe, which is a small step backwards but not detrimental. He received a rescue dose of morphine and it has really helped, which makes it look like withdrawal issues as opposed to respiratory issues.
We are beginning to meet some great people (nurses) over here in the NICU as we are slowly becoming acclimated to this new environment. Change is always uncomfortable, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.
I think we are being told that everything is going to slow down a little (as far as weaning, airflow, etc)…we are being warned that progress is typically slow around here, yet there is continual progress non-the-less. Once again our patiences will be tested, but I guess Beckett is worth the wait. 😉 We cannot wait to get this lil booger home, but ‘good things come to those who wait’!
1 Chronicles 16:10-13
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, you his servants, the descendants of Israel, his chosen ones, the children of Jacob.
